A Day at Moreau Lake State Park

Needs a location

We have the Fernwood Pavilion. Come for a few hours, all day, or anything in between. Bring games, hang out, read by yourself on the beach, hike, bring your kayak, rent a boat, swim, bring instruments, play music, sing (provided we don't disturb anyone). We have our own private pavilion. Bring a dish to share and your own beverages. $7 includes pavilion rental and hamburgers, hot dogs and buns, etc. Please pay as soon as you can to cover the fee for the pavilion and help me plan burgers and hot dogs. Send $7 check to: Gerri Ratigan 558 7th Avenue Troy, NY 12182 Include note that its for Moreau picnic day. But please note there is also an $8 car fee when you arrive at the park. Please post what you plan on bringing to share below. This is a popular weekend, so try to get there early to get a parking spot of share a ride. Its possible the park will close to new visitors as early as 11 a.m. BUT if you tell them my name (Gerri Ratigan) and its the Meetup Pavilion you are guaranteed to get in. It may be a longer walk though.

Earl Chapel and Oakwood Cemetery Tour

Needs a location

This is a private tour just for our group given by one of the friends of Oakwood Cemetery. We'll get a tour of the Earl Chapel and a private tour of the cemetery. Be ready to walk. There is a $15 fee. You must pay ahead. There is no refund. You can pay me when you see me or mail a check to: Gerri Ratigan 558 7th Avenue Troy, NY 12182 If you prefer paypal, send me your email, but paypal charges a small fee. I'll provide coffee. You are welcome to bring a snack. https://oakwoodcemetery.org/wordpress/ And thank you to Lawrence for reminding me about the Daffodil Tour given every April. Unfortunately, its already sold out. (I'm so sad about that!) If anyone wants to remind me by the first of next year, I can try to get us a spot for next spring!
