We will put the pumpkin soup on, and roast a turkey if you will bring a side dish or dessert to share (please reply with your choice from the list in the Evite to make sure we have a little of everything and not much waste) and your favorite beverage.
Appetizers will be served at 1:30pm followed by a sit down dinner around 3:00pm.
So get up late, have a light brunch and then come on over for a relaxed afternoon of great company, drinks and some fabulous holiday food.

The event begins with a Commemoration Service, followed by a picnic lunch with pot luck salads and desserts.  There is also an Australia vs. New Zealand cricket match, pond fishing for the kids and (if it is warm enough) swimming in the pool.
