Terry will be providing cold drinks for the painters. Please bring your dish to share in a cooler if possible, but he will have a small amount of refrigerator space if needed. Don’t forget a serving utensil. For those of you who prefer not to cook, it is fine to bring a store-bought item such as munchies, fruit, and other things to round out the lunch. We usually break for lunch at 12:30.
There is a pool, so if you want to cool off, bring your suit, towel, water shoes, etc.A nd everyone should bring hats, sunscreen, bug spray, and a folding chair if you have one, along with your painting supplies (don’t forget a drop cloth if painting with oils or acrylics – we have extras if needed).
Here are the directions:
Go north on Route 13 towards Temperanceville until you pass the Tyson Chicken plant on your left. Be on the lookout for a Sunoco station about 1/2 mile on the right. Immediately after the Sunoco station a right turn lane forms which will turn you onto New Temperanceville Road. Take it for approximately 1 mile and you will see a pretty, landscaped entrance with a white gate on your right. That is the Thomas residence. Park along the left side of the driveway, or by the barn area at the back. We’ll be meeting at the pool area near the barn.
Hope to see many of you there.
