Street Party on Simeon St - July 18, 2015

A big part of what we believe at the Network Church is that blessings are meant to be shared--and community is one of the richest blessings of all. For that reason, we've invited the surrounding community in the Central Frederick Neighbourhood to join us for a potluck BBQ and block party next Saturday, July 18th. Last year's event was a success, despite the rain, so we want to do it all over again.

We're closing off Simeon Street between Krug and Brubacher, right in front of our regular meeting spot at 103 Simeon Street. The Network Church will be providing hamburgers and sausages, and we're asking our neighbours to bring something to share for a potluck.

We'll have activities for the kids, including a craft, sidewalk chalk, and a bouncy castle... not to mention being able to ride your bike on the open street! Speaking of bikes, this year we'll also have a bike tune-up station, so bring your bikes along.

Here's what to bring to the event:
  • a side or dessert to share (see some ideas below)
  • lawn chairs
  • plates, cutlery, and cups, to help reduce our impact on the environment.
Looking for ideas for the potluck? Here are just a few suggestions that are always hits:
  • Veggies and dip
  • Potato salad
  • Cheese and crackers
  • Nachos and salsa/guacamole
  • Watermelon
  • Any other fresh fruit
  • Rice Krispy Squares
  • Bite-sized brownies
  • Raspberry pie
I could go on...

We're looking forward to a great time together as a community!

  1. This party is looking like a real fun party. My kids also love to party and that is why I am planning to throw a party for them at venues San Francisco but I am not sure about the theme. Can you help me please?
