Lake Wilderness Arboretum Annual Picnic – Sunday, August 11th

Lake Wilderness Arboretum Annual Picnic Potluck – Sunday, August 11th

Setup 11 am. Potluck lunch served at 12 noon.

If you attend church and are a little late  – that’s okay too.

Mark your calendar now and plan on attending! It’s always so enjoyable visiting with each other outside of our club meetings.

This is such a beautiful, relaxing location for our annual Club picnic. The Lake Wilderness Arboretum is so gracious to allow us to use this outstanding spot under the trees which includes picnic tables and parking. It’s a great family event. Afterwards the Lake is within an easy distance for swimming, beach fun and a children play area. If you decide to take advantage of the lake beach and play ground areas we advise that you move your car to that sections parking lot. Our club Arboretum parking area closes after we are done.

It is a potluck even with rock and mineral auction following. It’s also a great time to sit and chat with each other and talk “rock”.
