Don’t Miss the 15th Annual Turkey Fry
WHO: All members of our Phoenix Sail & Power Squadron and family.

What: The Annual Turkey Fry Potluck!  

WHEN: 18 November 2017, 1100 (11 am). Din­ner will be 1400 (2PM) (if ALL the turkeys cooperate).

WHERE: We will meet at the Connie & Bill Johnson’s home located at 8935 W Villa Chula St, Peoria AZ 85383. 

COST:  $5.00 per adult, under 18 free.  Bring your family, a Thanksgiving dish to share, a chair and eating utensils, and a thankful heart. There will be ample time for visiting with others and/or playing games.   There is room for horseshoes. 

Plans are to deep fry 3 turkeys again this year.  Other dishes needed are mashed po­tatoes, sweet potatoes, vegetables, rolls, gravy, stuffing, desserts, very large paper plates, plastic silverware, butter, ice, or anything else you would find at a Thanksgiving dinner table.

So that we have ample food and a good variety, please RSVP to Bill or Connie Johnson with your number of people attending as well as what food dish you intend to bring.  In past years we consumed three (3) twenty-pound turkeys, had no leftovers or hungry people! We hope to see you there and look forward to another great day with our boating family.

Special Note: This is a location in north Peoria.  See the map for directions.  Bill Johnson BILLJ6@GMAIL.COM, Cell:  623-396-5468 or Connie Johnson  Cell: 602-695-2147
