See the tail end of the other thread if you’re interested – but there’s been a request that we set a specific date now for the annual celebration. (By specific date, we mean something along the lines of “third Saturday of X month,” not “the 24th.”) At the time, the discussion focussed on June and July, with a decision made for the third Saturday of July – now it turns out that not everyone is happy with that decision.
Imagine my astonishment.
There are actual advantages to picking the date now and making it standard – specifically, if we reserve far enough (i.e., a year) in advance, we can get dibs on the pavilion closest to the playground, which is a Good Thing considering the number of kids who attend. So, let’s accept as given the idea that we want to set a standard date.
Said date might take place in May, when the weather would probably be cooler and more pleasant. Mother’s Day is traditionally the second Sunday, so we probably wouldn’t want that weekend; Memorial Day is usually the last Monday, so we wouldn’t want that weekend. How do people feel about the third Saturday in May?
