Holiday Party at Kate Reed’s
36 Naushon Road, Pawtucket, RI
Come, relax, enjoy yourself. As is usual for big occasions, we will have a potluck.
There will be at least one hearty soup and a meat platter but Kate has three crock pots, three platter warmers, an oven and a microwave and one-and-a-half refrigerators, so there are more options than usual. If you are arriving on the early side perhaps an appetizer would be a good choice; or if you tend to run late, a dessert. Also, please bring beverages, "adult" (which, presumably, means booze) or otherwise. Kate will provide coffee and tea. Please call Kate at 401-359-7361 or e-mail her (email@example.com) with your positive reply to attend, so that food quantities (hearty soups and stews) can be determined, and to let her know what you will be bringing.
Directions to Kate Reedʼs from eastern and central Mass:
Pick up I-95 south into Attleboro, Mass.
Take exit 2A - Massachusetts Route 1A south; cross into Rhode Island, you are on Newport Avenue.
Go about 2 miles; turn left (at a traffic light and CVS) onto Armistice Boulevard, which is Route 15 east.
Go about 0.8 mile, passing the entrance to Slater Park (which has a big clamshell monument to honor veterans) on your right.
Cross Ten Mile River and take an immediate right onto Alexander McGregor Road (opposite Pawtucket Country Club), then take third left onto Naushon Road (street sign may be missing).
#36 is the plum-colored colonial on the left, opposite Tashmoo Way.(If you miss the turn onto McGregor and you find yourself passing the Country Club, take a right onto Pequot into the same development and Naushon will be your third left. Do not be confused by adjacent Naushon Court.)
If the weather is bad on December 2 (or predicted to be ), go to
to verify that the party is still on and has not been postponed. We will try to have any announcement of postponement posted before 10 AM on the day of the party. (This is a public area - no need to log in to see the message.)
