Yu Ming at the Beach – Family Picnic on Sunday, June 24

Celebrate the end of year with a day out on Alameda beach!  We plan on gathering anytime from 11am onwards and will keep going until the last people drop. We will have a potluck picnic lunch around noon so please bring a dish to share and some drinks for your group. We will just throw blankets and sheets on the beach so keep it simple!

Let’s meet at the beach directly across from the end of Grand Street, which is about mid-point along the beach. Street parking is readily available in the immediate area.

Please feel free to bring sand toys, games, kites, swimsuits, etc., etc.

We will also have several volunteers hosting the “Used Uniform Sale” between 11am and 1pm (or until stocks last!). We will be selling gently used uniforms at great prices; all proceeds will go to the school.

Incoming 2012-2013 families have also been invited, so please come and welcome them if you can.  Questions? Contact Dennis Dornan at drdornan@hotmail.com.
