Annual OFS Beach Party

Greetings neighbors —

The invitations are out and planning is well underway for our upcoming “Farewell to Summer Family Beach Picnic” to be held on Sunday, September 20th from 4:00pm to 7:00pm at West Meadow Beach.  Last year’s event was a tremendous success and we’re sure this year’s will be to.  Once again it’s a pot luck.  Guests are asked to bring an appetizer, salad, main dish or side dish to share (enough for eight).  All the details are spelled out on your invitation.  The OFS Property Owners Association will provide paper goods, water, soda, and dessert.  Feel free to bring beach chairs, blankets and tables.

Join your neighbors in saying farewell to summer and in celebrating the wonderful community we share!

Rain Date: September 27


Spring Social

Greetings neighbors –

Thanks to the many wonderful neighbors who came together to make this year’s spring social a rousing success!  Great conversation, delicious wine, tasty goodies, and a beautiful sunset over the Long Island Sound all made for a lovely evening.  Special thanks to fellow Board members Maura and Maria who put it all together and Joan who provided the pretty plants that decorated our tables and served as party favors.

Hope to see you all at our picnic at the end of the summer!  Last year’s was fabulous!


Beach Party Update

Greetings neighbors –

Here are a few more details about our upcoming “Old Fashioned Beach Picnic Supper” to be held at West Meadow Beach on September 7th  from 4:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.:

We’ve changed the venue to both save money and take advantage of the natural beauty at our back door!  This family event will feature food, fun, and fellowship.  In keeping with our “old fashioned” theme we will ask each household to bring food to share (enough for eight or more) as well as your own beach chairs, blankets and tables.  The POA will provide paper goods, water, soda, and dessert for all.    Organized games, activities and contests will be featured.

An official invitation will be sent in early August.  At that time we will ask you to indicate the type of dish you are bringing (appetizer, salad, main course, or side dish).  We will also ask for volunteers to organize and host the games, activities, and contests (tug of war, painting shells and faces, potato sack races, beach ball games, scavenger hunt, etc.).  These volunteer positions could be a great opportunity to involve some of our teens in the community.

The Board looks forward to seeing each of you there.  Let’s send the summer off with a celebration of the wonderful place in which we live!
