Unfortunately we have made the decision to CANCEL this evening’s planned picnic, because the weather is forecasted to be wet and cool. We are very sorry to make this decision on short notice and apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
Instead we will plan to have a family style pot luck dinner and Fall Court of Honor (awards ceremony) on Wednesday October 5th at the church. Please mark your calendars for this event. More details will follow in the coming weeks.
