The picnic will be held at the pavilion from about 12:00 to 4:00. The combined clubs will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, buns, rolls, paper plates, cups, utensils, condiments, and soft drinks. The pavilion has 14 large picnic tables, which are under the pavilion, a large paved parking area, restrooms, charcoal grills, running water, 2-3 refrigerators and power outlets all over the place (in cooking area and on posts near the tables and lighting). They provide a volley ball court (bring your own ball), 3 sets of horse shoes for the 3 pits, and bocce balls/court, plus there is a large field if we wanted to play baseball or for the kids to run around.
There is a stream along side that can be fished and a swimming beach directly
across the road (low admission fee per person) with a snack bar and basketball
YOUR ADMISSION FEE is to bring a side dish to share, such as an appetizer, casserole, salad (pasta, veggies, potato, etc.), dessert, or whatever you think is yummy!
