Spend an Afternoon in the Country with CAW

The menu will be classic picnic food- hamburgers, hotdogs, and picnic salads. To round out the menu, guests should also bring a dish of choice based on the following alphabetic division:

A-F chips, dips and snacks-
G-L salads-
M-S main dishes, e.g. baked beans-
T-Z desserts-


The picnic will be held Saturday June 9. The festivities will kick off at 11:00 with a social hour. Lunch will be served at 12:00. Based on the Neam family’s forbearance, we will wrap up around 3:00. There is plenty of room so we plan to bring lathes and carving equipment. Family members, wives, children, and grandchildren, are welcome.
