Come join us for our annual July party and picnic.  It will be held at the Carderock Recreation Area, about one mile Northwest (outside) of the beltway on the Clara Barton Parkway, just across the American Legion Bridge in Maryland.  Enjoy a beautiful summer afternoon and evening. (If the weather is not so beautiful, come anyway, as we will be under a large covered pavilion.)  Come early and enjoy the beverages and avoid the traffic. We will provide water, soft drinks, beer and wine, and a barbecue of hamburgers and hot dogs. (Wine and beer are permitted in the pavilion area only.)  We will also have games, music, and of course, fun.  

Best of all, this is a free event!  To help us determine how much food to buy, please register here.

We will start serving beverages at 3:00, and the barbecue at 4:00.  We must be cleaned up and out of the park by dark.
