visit of OAKMONT

Post  catherine ch. on Tue Jul 08, 2008 8:49 am

like we have decided at the last week visit of Sewickley, the next discovery will be Oakmont
Oakmont is a little city along the Allegheny river not far from Fox Chapel( other side of the river)

because a lot of us is in holiday or back in our home country or traveling....we'll do it at the end of August

i fixed the date at AUGUST 26 TH
it is a tuesday and most of the children will already be back to school....

what i plan to do is that we could meet at my house in Fox Chapel...let our cars (and the food for a potluck see further)in my yard , go together in only a few cars to Oakmont,go to the discovery of the place and after come back to my house for a potluck and picking up the cars...
we would begin around 10/10.30

tell me what you think about it

in any way i'll come back abt it in august 2weeks before!!!!

put a cross in your agendas and enjoy your holidays...

see you soon

And count me in. I am going to Vancouver for about ten days at the beginning of August - my first visit to Canada's west coast. I am excited and looking forward to it. If any of you have been there do give suggestions of what not to miss.

Have fun summer holidays everyone.

I'd enjoy coming for this, but would like a ride, I think. Remy and I can get to most places by bus, but sometimes it takes a while.. We live on Spring Hill, which is sort of between Fox Chapel and the Airport, but not exactly on the highway. If you still have room in your car, Regina, or if anyone else is coming by this way, let me know? Thanks!

Hi!

I am still interested in coming, but I would definitely need a ride. I have asked Sheila if she was still coming and if she is then I would most probably ride with her. I am also looking into a bus to Waterworks and could then meet someone there.

Cheers!

there are constructions in my street and every day they close a part of the street
so i'm not sure that tomorrow the whole street will be open...there will prebably be a detour
so to make it easier for everybody let's say that we meet at waterworks mall in front of the ROSS shop for less store
at 10.00 am
i'll send a personal message to all the ladies who said they would come....please let follow the information and confirm to me that you received this message so that we don't wait for you in vain...

see you tomorrow

Thanks Catherine,

I had a great day. We had perfect weather.
The picnic at your place was(like always)great.
I hope Remy had his nap. Martine what about ironing.
I think I will do the laundry tomorrow. It was a long day.
See you all next week.
(who's next for exploring a neighborhood)
