Annual Fall Picnic

Greetings Beeks
Our annual fall picnic is right around the corner!
The picnic is at Gregory Pond, on 9/21, 3pm till dusk.

We need volunteers to help with food, drinks, foodware (utensils, plates, napkins, plastic glasses, trash bags, etc) and a grill big enough for a group of 30+or-.

Please contact Bruce Hamon if you have any questions or to sign up to help.


Reminder: No fishing or walking on the dam.

More details to follow. Stay tuned!
