Come join us for a celebration of the life and love of Mary and Richard at Lakeside Park in Ithaca, New York!
Our reception will be a potluck supper. You should bring at least an entree and your own beverages. Bring your own libation, however please serve it in opaque containers as Steve is going through rehab and doesn't need to be tempted with alcohol.
Also please note that Nancy is Vegan, so any entree you bring should be vegan compatible. Consult Nancy if in doubt.Please bear in mind that Jim is allergic to peanuts and Susan is allergic to chocolate, so both of those are no-no's.
In addition, we want to have an environmentally-friendly, zero-carbon footprint, recyclable wedding reception. So we ask that you do not bring disposable dinnerware, paper plates, napkins, or any other items they will add to our landfill crisis. Reusable and washable plates, glasses, pots, and pans are a must, or if necessary they should at least be recyclable. The Park is carry-in, carry-out, so please bring your own recycling containers!
Dress is casual, however we request that you wear only natural fibers. Please, no spandex, that is made by the Koch brothers!
We hope you appreciate these guidelines in the spirit and which they are given. We want everyone to have a relaxing and enjoyable time without any incidences of microaggression or oppression.Hope to see you there! RSVP regrets only.
Yes, we shouldn't discriminate on the basis of race, religion, or gender. No, the rest of us don't have to stop eating peanuts in public because your kid has an allergy. Nor should we feel guilty of having a hamburger just because you choose to be Vegan. And if we throw out a paper plate, it is not an assault on your cultural values. In fact, it likely is less of an impact on the environment than the hot water and soap used in washing your eco-dishes.
