Attention East Bay Amigos

Our annual Graduation/Despedida is this Sunday!

When: Sunday May 20, 2 PM to 5 PM

Where: Newt Hollow group picnic site, Bear Creek Staging Area, Briones Regional Park. Do not rely on GPS! See directions below.

Family members welcome! The first half will be a picnic BBQ lunch, to be followed by recognition of our Amigos, presentation of the Jeanette Dimock Award, and announcements/photo opportunities.

Please bring a salad/side dish to share. We’ll be grilling hamburgers and veggie burgers. The chapter will provide these, along with dessert

  • Cots will be available to borrow for the summer, with a $100 refundable deposit.
  • First aid kits can be purchased at cost of contents ($12)
  • Bring any remaining fundraising checks and family fees
  • There is a $3 parking fee
  • Bring your cameras!
  • Bring your own drinks if you wish something other than iced East Bay district tap water.
  • Remember to bring your own non-disposable plates, cups, utensils, and napkin – for each member of your family. A plastic bag for carrying your used dishes is handy.  As usual, we hope to produce minimal waste.
