New Melissa Pond Dinner Date

Not to be confused with a Dinner Date with Melissa Pond; sorry single guy PRIDEsters... she's happily married and we're excited to meet her hubby and baby daughter!

Come join us for a night of fun and reuniting before she heads to California!

We're all getting back on the health bandwagon, so we're giving it another go... this time it will be:

Friday, 11 April 2008
Jeff Litster's House
(Taco Soup and potluck sides/desserts/drinks)

(Contact Jeff to get directions; please be sure to RSVP by leaving a comment on this post so we can know how many are coming and can make enough Taco Soup.)

When you leave your comment, tell us how many people you're bringing and what side-dish, dessert or drinks you're bringing (no alcohol please; we're PRIDE after all!) ;)

We'll see you there...

Melissa's farewell dinner will be rescheduled

It is with great remorse that we have to cancel the dinner tonight. With so many of us sick with various colds, coughs, sinus stuff, etc. it will be better for everyone if we stall for a bit. Jeff and Melissa will work on scheduling another evening, before she makes her way to LA. Once a new date is chosen, we'll post it to this site, and contact those who have left comments on the other post. Hopefully those who weren't able to come tonight will be able to join us for the rescheduled dinner!

Thanks for understanding. We hope everyone gets well soon!!

Melissa Pond is moving away.

It was a good reason to have a pot-luck dinner at Jeff Litster's House (Gwen is making Taco soup). Come and enjoy some time with Melissa before her exodus to Los Angeles!

Please leave a comment if you are planning on coming and let everyone know what you are bringing (side, drink, dessert) and how many people are coming (adults, children). We can't wait to see all of you.

Date: Friday March 14, 2008
Time: 6:30pm
Where: Jeff Litster home (Riverton)

(For directions please email Jeff)

PS: Melissa's baby daughter is finishing recovery from RSV; Jeff has twin infants and Jered has a baby daughter as well. If you have sick ones, please arrange to leave them home with a sitter so we avoid getting the wee ones sick!

13 March 2008 Update: Jeff's kids woke up with coughs yesterday morning... they seem to be the morning/evening-only coughs and we're not sure if they're colds or allergies or what... they don't seem serious yet but 3 of my 5 have them. If everyone's still comfortable coming, I'm still willing to host Friday and we'll keep the kids at bay as much as possible (they're pretty good about covering their coughs with their arms (instead of their hands) to help prevent spreading. Please comment and let me know who has concerns...

Jered also mentioned his baby daughter has a cough too... I don't know the status of Melissa's daughter's RSV recovery...

If need be, we can reschedule, or go somewhere else. Sorry for the late notice, but it came on sudden for all of us. Please let us know by leaving comments here whether or not you'd still like to go for Friday night. I'd like to make it work if we can.

14 March 2008 Update: Unfortunately, we have had to cancel the dinner for tonight. With illnesses affecting so many of us, we will enter a holding pattern to let everyone get better. Jeff will talk with Melissa about alternate dates, and we'll let everyone know as soon as one is chosen. Thanks for understanding, and everyone: get well soon!!
