Lag BaOmer Bonfire-Potluck, May 2, 7:00 p.m. at the Winklers

Beth Shalom members and their friends are invited to a bonfire (actually, more of a campfire) on Sunday, May 2, weather permitting, at  Ben and Tara Winkler‘s, 1802 Iris Avenue.

A dairy potluck is planned.

This potluck and bonfire is from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.  Show up anytime in this period.  Bring your favorite dish and, if you have them, musical instruments. No alcohol, please.

Directions to Winklers: about 4 miles north of town, in the country.

From Hwy 1 in Fairfield (northbound from Square) — going about 4 miles; Turn left on 185th Street (large Golden Gate building on your left); Continue down 185th Street about 2 miles (it becomes a gravel road after 1 and 1/2 miles), where in ends in a “T”.  This cross street is Iris Ave (also gravel); Turn right on Iris Ave., go about 1/4 mile and you’ve arrived!

Please park in the driveway, graveled lot, or on the side on Deerfield.  Please do not park on Iris Ave. (a public road) — this could cause a hazard.

The Winkler’s house, 1802 Iris Ave., is at the corner of Iris and Deerfield, yellow
with red trim and green roof.  The bonfire will be a few dozen yards south of the house.
