Club Picnic 2019

SUNDAY, February 10, at 12:00  annual picnic at Jonathon Dickenson State Park.

We will have a banner flying from the “Kitching Creek” pavilion so you can find us!

Ask when you enter the park gate and the ranger will tell you where the “Kitching Creek” pavilion is located.

The club, as always, will supply the hot dogs, hamburgers, buns and lots of fun!

You all need to bring appetizers, sides, and desserts to share; and your own drinks.We also need experts to be volunteer bar-b-que cooks!

By e-mail jefforns@comcast.net please let me know how many are attending (so we can plan the dogs and burgers) and what food you are bringing.

Remember to bring your cameras as there is lots to photograph and we are going to blow-up big BUBBLES!
