**NOTE: Please do not place comments in the comment section, Please indicate what you plan to bring and place all comments  in the "6th Annual Picnic" discussion board link. Please use the link below, Thanks***

 

Come help us celebrate with our new and old CBPSN friends! Bring your beach/park games, chairs/blankets and food/beverage. As usual, we'll be there until at least 7pm.

The picnic officially begins at Noon, but feel free to come out early with your blankets and chairs, and pick out a great spot in the park for the entire day! We also need volunteers for the Set-up/Clean-up crew and they will be expected to arrive at 10:00am to reserve our picnic location.

Please indicate what you are bringing in the "6th Annual Picnic" discussion board link we'd like to have a variety of food and plan our celebration properly! Please do not put comments in the comment section, put them in the discussion board thread. Please use the link below.

We'd like to organize our food tables as we have in the past:  A meat table, veggie table, pasty table, fruit table, condiments and bread table, etc., so folks, we’re really going to need lots more portable tables and lawn chairs.

We have a lot more “new” and "active" members than we've had in the past, so please bring extra patio furniture, if you have any.

We also need several individual large ice coolers to keep cold soda, juice and water in, as well as plenty of ice, so please volunteer to bring out those items too . (And paper plates, paper towels and plastic utensils are always wonderful to have at picnics too)

 

****We have a payment link available (see below) for folks who would like to contribute $$$ towards food if you don't feel like hauling it out to the park.*****

We also want to have board games and activity tables for those who wish to play cards and board games in the shaded areas near the trees. (Last year, we even had a nice chess tournament going!)

This is a 21+, people-only event. "Special blend" liquid refreshments will be served, and there may be people present with animal allergies or aversions. So please, any guests you decide to bring must walk on 2 legs on a regular basis (and not communicate by throwing its own poop)!

Last but not least, don’t forget your mosquito spray and sun-block lotion! (Ok, don’t say we didn’t tell you so…)

***ALL questions/comments and listing of what you will bring to the picnic can be posted in the discussion board and NOT the comment section. Please use the link below***

    I want to thank everyone one of you for your love and prayers my grandboy is doing well he was in an car accident where he went thru the back windshield, he has some skin missing from his face and a neck brace and he's sore. But by the Grace of God he's here with us. Again thanks for all of you all prayers. I can finally sleep now.

    Thanks so much to all the organizers for your hard work: Wendell, Tracey, Jason, Emily, Nairobi, Marco. I hope I did not forget anyone. Thanks so much, I had a ball. So well organized, from the meetup sign to the food, without forgetting the drinks, the music and the crowd. It made me feel that my dream to be on the Summer time video by Will Smith and Jazzy Jeff has come true.
