Carroll.  There is a sign-up sheet for attendance and peripherals posted in the Undercroft, as well as a map with directions to their home.  All are welcome and to bring a friend, but don't forget to sign-up so we can make sure we have enough food.  Meat will be supplied by the Vestry.  We plan to gather at 2:30 to 3:00pm and to eat at 4:30pm.
