Our annual Newcomer Family Picnic at Riverbend Park was moved from August to September this year to help families avoid vacation conflicts and take advantage of cooler weather. We had an absolutely BEAUTIFUL day for our picnic! We met for a 30 minute hayride at 4 p.m., and the little kids enjoyed getting to ride the tractor! Afterwards, we ate chicken provided by the club and sampled the side dishes and desserts that the members of the club prepared. The kids were able to run around and play on the playground, and the adults could mingle and chit-chat. It was nice to have the chance to include both husbands and children in our socializing and to put faces with names of all of the family that are so dear to our members!
