The National Organization of Gay and Lesbian Scientists and Technical Professionals - Chesapeake Region invites you to join us for some summer fun on Saturday, July 9, at the Annapolis home of NOGLSTP-CR member Lawrie Hollingsworth. This is a family-friendly event, so please bring your partners, children, and other family.
What: Barbecue and Movie Night
Where: Home of Lawrie Hollingsworth in Annapolis (see text, below, for address and parking information)
When: Saturday, July 9, 3 pm - LATE (rain or shine)
RSVP: NOGLSTP-CRfirstname.lastname@example.org, by Wednesday, July 6
This will be a fun, informal gathering. NOGLSTP-CR will provide basic grilling items (hot dogs, burgers, and veggie burgers–along with buns) and condiments (ketchup, mustard, and relish). BYOB (including alcoholic beverages if desired, but always drink responsibly), along with anything else you’d like to grill and your favorite fixings. Please also bring a side dish or a dessert to share. Lawrie has graciously offered to host us into the night and to grant us the use of her entertainment center to watch some movies. So please also bring your favorite family-friendly films.
Lawrie lives at 1706 Trinity Place, Annapolis, MD 21401. Per Lawrie, “We are at the end of a cul de sac, so parking is no problem. We just ask that people not park in our driveway; the kids play ball there and will probably be riding scooters or something up and down it.” For directions, Lawrie suggests that you use Mapquest. Once you’re in range, here is some guidance from Lawrie: “We are in a private community on the water called The Downs. When you turn off Route 178 onto Old Generals Highway and go down Sherwood Forest Dr., you’ll turn right through Coachway and see 2 brick markers that say ‘The Downs.’ When you go a few more blocks on Coachway, you’ll come to the main entrance and see bigger brick gates that have ‘The Downs’ written on them. First street on the right after that is Trinity Place.”
Lawrie’s home features a deck, a fire pit, and (she guarantees) “the biggest grill you have ever seen at anyone’s house.” Feel free to bring any activities that can be safely enjoyed in the out-of-doors. This is a rain or shine event, as Lawrie will make her spacious interior available if necessary, and the grill is in a covered area. So if the weather looks bad, feel free to bring board games and other indoor activities, instead.
