Sunday August 5, 2018 – It’s Picnic Time!!

Our Annual Club Picnic is Sunday, August 5, 2018

Our August meeting is our annual Club picnic and auction. It is on Sunday, August 6th at the Lake Wilderness Arboretum the driveway to the left of the park/lake/lodge.
It is a beautiful spot to enjoy the sunny afternoon, potluck, rock auction, socializing and the gardens. Guests and children are always welcome!
As usual we are going to have nice rocks and specimen’s up for auction at great prices!
(Our picnic replaces our regular general meeting for August. There is no meeting on August 10th.)
After the picnic you can always go swimming at Lake Wilderness. They have a nice beach and plenty of parking or a very short walk from our picnic area. The beach area also has great shade areas among the trees while you watch the kids play in the water.
