In the electronic age, some groups find themselves with more than one communications channel. That is what's happened to us. In addition to our meetup site, we have a site on the national DFA website (http://www.dfalink.com/group.php?id=99)
. We also sent out e-vites to others in the political sphere who are not DFA members. Between DFALink and the e-vites 64 people
have confirmed that they will be attending our third annual picnic this coming Sunday, June 10
. That's why you don't want to miss what is sure to be our best picnic ever.
This year, our picnic is in Loose Park
, just a few blocks South of the Plaza on Wornall Road, from 2:00PM until 5:30PM
. Our shelter is the large shelter near the duck pond and, also near the Wornall entrances (one at 51st & Wornall and one at 52nd and Wornall) to the park.
Our picnic has good food, great guest speakers (Beth Gottstein
