Annual Member Picnic – Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Please gather at 11:30  at Lake Louise and bring your own picnic. We have  a table and covered area (the largest one closest to Merrimon Avenue from Townhall).   We have the reservation until 1:30, which should be amply sufficient for our meal together and the business/voting meeting.  It comes so quickly, but we are about to elect new officers for 2015 – 2016. Please contact our Co-Presidents, Diane and Janet, if you are interested in running for any of these fun positions!  We will celebrate our wonderful year of sharing, gardening, learning, and laughter!
