Family Picnic
Back Home Up Next




 “Bring your family and join in the fun!  Arrive by boat or car!  Bring a picnic lunch, a potluck salad or dessert and lawn chairs!  Soft drinks will be provided!”  These were the recommendations of the Family Picnic Committee and it proved an unqualified success.

Over fifty people showed on Sunday, August 17 at the Tripp Lake Camp from 11:30- 2 p.m. to enjoy a little tennis, basketball, and shmoozing with old friends and new.    It was a perfect day, with rain clouds arriving after the picnic ended.  Our thanks to Judy King, Ellie Kelley, Ruth and Bob Desjardins, Jean Mangini, Gae Hinkley and Terri and Howard Sherman for organizing the event and making everyone feel welcome.

 It’s hoped to hold another picnic next year at a different location.  Tripp Lake Camp has been most hospitable over the years, but the time frame for scheduling it there is limited.   Perhaps someone can suggest another venue;  if you have an idea, please contact Judy King or Linda Laskey.
