Event Description

Come and enjoy some family time with like minded exmos! We are having a pot-luck style picnic. Feel free to bring any sports equipment/toys that your family would like. I plan to bring a frisbee, Rugby balls, and Bocce Balls. This is a Bring Your Own Utensils/Plates kind of party, so pack what you need to eat the picnic, and we can all share our food. I am going to scout the area in the next couple weeks to find the perfect spot to meet up and eat, and I'll add that in ASAP.

We have blended families that we want to feel welcome, so please be aware that there will be all levels of belief/disbelief and act with your best foot forward. (Does that make this a missionary effort for our side??)

There is a great playground area for kids and TONS of walking trails. Bring your camera, some blankets to lay on and anything else you'd normally bring for a fun day out! Hope to see all of you there!

Sounds great, Kathy. Thanks for spearheading this!

Sure thing LessMon!  Hopefully we can get a decent turnout!
Comment by Kathy on July 13, 2011 at 5:25pm
I am thinking we should meet up at the top.  They have lots of picnic tables up there.  Depending on weather and activity level if we want to move closer to the playground or another location??  Any ideas?

I don't know the park well enough to help with specific spots. But if you'd like, I'm happy to post the meetup announcement at my usual forums. Do you want to get feedback and/or finalize the "spot" suggestion by, say, Friday or so and I can post Friday or Saturday?

I say meet at the top.  There is a parking area just down from there and a bunch of stairs to go up.  If you want to post this around Eric that would be great!  Thanks!

I will be there with my two kids and spouse, whom has not been to an "exMormon" event.   Just to make sure I have the right park, does it have reservoirs?

I've only been there once, but I don't remember reservoirs. It's a hill / small mountain on the east side of Portland. Kathy - are there reservoirs?
Comment by Kathy on July 18, 2011 at 8:09am
Yes, it does have reservoirs.  It is a lovely park with a ton of trails, not to far from Skavones where we used to have our meetups.

We may have bad weather judging by what has been coming our way lately.  I planned an outdoor activity mid summer feeling confident that it wouldn't be an issue.  Silly me.  Anyone have any suggestions for an alternate rainy day plan?
