Save The Date: “06880” Blog Party Is July 18

If you’re reading this, you’re part of the great “06880” online community.

Which means you’re invited to our 6th annual “blog party.”

The date is Thursday, July 18. We’ll gather at 6 p.m. at Compo Beach — specifically, alcohol-is-okay South Beach, by the trees (the opposite end from the cannons).

Bring your own food, beverages (no glass bottles, though!), beach chairs and blankets.

The first 5 years were great successes. They were true community gatherings– chances to meet and mingle with the diverse “06880” community (both online and real). It’s fun, un-fancy, and free (unless you don’t have a sticker — but even then, we’ll try to arrange rides).

This year’s blog party will be better than ever. And here’s a special feature: a new bathroom has just been built, a few steps across the road.

You may recall reading about it on “06880.”

Happy party-goers at the 2014 “06880” bash.

  1. Dan — you’ve arranged rides for me in the past. I hope you can this year, too. I’d hate to miss your great party — always the best in town!

  2. So, Dan —

    Wonder how many 08860-ers live in the Portland, OR area. Maybe we can have our own blog party on the coast. Ya think? Gulf Coast, anyone?

    • Thanks, Bonnie! I LOVE that you make the trip down from Roxbury. It’s always fantastic to see you! It’s not an “06880” blog party without you 🙂
