Oncology Family Potluck

Elk Lake at Hamsterly Beach (off of Hamsterly Road. Here's a link to Google Maps:,-123.3926526,17.51z)

Bring whatever works for your family - do not let food prep or lawn chairs become a hurdle limiting your enjoyment of this opportunity to spend time together. Pizza or other take-out is totally valid. The idea is to get together, build community, and the let the children play. Michelle and I will be there no matter what, so come if you can. We are looking forward to seeing you and meeting new families.

I will bring my portable gas BBQ with plenty of gas. You are welcome to use it! Michelle will bring condiments so you don't have to lug those along.

Please feel free to bring your own portable BBQs and as many of the following items as you want to:

  • Something for the BBQ (burgers, hotdogs, mushrooms, zucchini, whatever)
  • Salads or other sides
  • Plates, forks, cups, napkins
  • Water
  • Sunscreen
  • Chairs
  • Beach toys 
  • Note: if you don't have some of these items, don't worry. Others will have some to share and we're a generous bunch.
