It will be a great day for a picnic ! REMEMBER: We will supply the paper goods, cups, napkins as well as coals for a BBQ. I would like to get an accurate head count so I know how many tables we will need and items to purchase. YOU will supply your own food and beverage and bring one (1) dish to share for all. It would be helpful if you could write down what you plan on bringing so we don’t have 20 dishes of macaroni salad.
Suggestions to bring: lawn chair, Frisbee, beach ball, volleyball but above all bring your smiles ! Wear comfy clothes, we can walk to the zoo, down to the river, around the lake, even rent a boat but you can also just hang out and enjoy the weather and the company.
VIEW THE MAP at the bottom of this email. We will have picnic tables near the lake. Look for meetup signs and or me or Rona !
Please be respectful. Check your calendar and update your RSVP if your plans have changed.
