Our annual July party and picnic will be held at Lake Accotink Park in Springfield, Virginia. We will be picnicking at the McLaren-Sargent Shelter.
Enjoy a beautiful summer afternoon and early evening. (If the weather is not so beautiful, come anyway, as we will be under a large covered pavilion). We will provide water, soft drinks, beer and wine, plus catered BBQ with all the fixin's. And we will have games, music, and of course, fun.
This year we will have a nominal fee of $10 (members) to cover the cost "Rain or Shine", no refunds. Non-members are also welcome to attend for $15. Registration and payment must be in advance and due by 12 noon on Friday, July 23. This will allow us to order the correct amount of food, beverages, and supplies.
We will start serving beverages and snacks at 3 PM, and food will be served starting at 4 PM. We must be cleaned up and out of the park by dark.
