RECENT

1. 2020 Summer Picnic was held on July 19 at Lake Accotink Park in Springfield, VA.
About 70 attended on a very warm day between 3-7pm.   It was organized by Social Chair Bernie Gilbert and Leader Linda Kenis. 

Linda worked diligently to navigate the Fairfax County's application and permit process, selected a caterer, and helped serve everyone.

It takes many hands and hours to plan and conduct this kind of event.  Thank you, Linda and Helpers
