Our First Annual Private Beach Party '07 was voted the best party of the year. 200 people from 10 states -- Maryland, Virginia, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Indiana, New Jersey, South Carolina, Hawaii and Washington,DC -- came to enjoy the day of Fun in the Sun, live music and dance, boat and jet ski rides, crab and beer feast, swimming and ball games, and of course, meeting new people and starting new relationships. We all owe that to David Olszowy, one of EI clients who came up with an idea of All-Day Beach Party and who hosted it for all Encounters International fellow members in August 07.
This year the Beach Party will be hosted by two hosts, two clients of Encounters International, two Amigos-- David Olszowy and Luis Nieves. They met at one of EI monthly socials and became best friends. Both had volunteered to host some of our Saturday Socials and did it with a lot of passion and creativity that all of us appreciated. . Last year Christmas Party is one of their "joint ventures"
A Beach Party is always fun. But if you add Dave's birthday on July 26 and his fiancee' Lidia's arrival from Ukraine, we'll get a perfect party occasion. "The more, the merrier," says Dave as he extends the party invitation to his fellow co-workers and his family members.

This All Day Beach Party is a paradise for our families with children because the sandy beach is very shallow and children would enjoy water activities. A play ground is also available.
The party is FREE for all Encounters International members and families however reservation is necessary this time. This is a relatively small private beach that accommodates 250 people. Cut off date for RSVP is July 20, 2008 or earlier if the number of reservations accedes the beach capacity.
Two ladies from Kiev have already made their reservations as they booked their international flights from Kiev to Washington DC just to be at the party. I expect more internationally originated reservation to follow soon. All out of country and out of state ladies will receive free overnight accommodation as special guests of EI family of clients. Gentlemen can book a room in the nearby hotel.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
