    It time to start planning for this year's picnic.
      The Picnic Committee suggested to the Board that they run the picnic a little differently than was done in the past.  Since it is difficult to get enough volunteers to run the games, the committee suggested that we have more musical performances, and less games.  They are currently looking for artists to perform at this year's picnic.  They ask that anyone interested in helping at the picnic this year, either as a performer, or as a volunteer, to please contact any one of the Board members.   Everyone is looking forward to a wonderful picnic - hope for sunshine!
