Siete cortesemente invitati a un picnic gratuito per celebrare l’estate e il FERRAGOSTO a St. Louis, all’esclusivo Enterprise Pavilion nel Shaw Park di Clayton, sabato 21 agosto, dalle 16,00 alle 23,00.
Questa è una festa familiare dove tutti sono ugualmente benvenuti. Gli adiacenti campi di pallavolo e giochi per bambini sono a nostra disposizione. Ci sarà cibo a volontà, antipasti, grigliata di pollo e salsiccia; serviremo vino, birra e bibite analcoliche e siete tutti invitati a portare e condividere un piatto a vostra scelta o bevande alternative; portate quello che volete e quello che vi viene meglio.
Questo evento è gratis ma abbiamo bisogno di capire quante persone vengono per capire quante provviste dobbiamo comprare. Per favore, “prenotate” il più presto possibile. Per maggiori informazioni, potete inviare un email a: email@example.com
