The picnic was a wash-out but a good time was held by all who attended, submitted by Jim O’Brien
June 14, 2015, dawned bright and sunny, but true to the weather forecast, did not stay that way. By 11:30 am, sprinkles of rain were growing in abundance, but the optimistic organizers still packed cricket, volleyball, Frisbee, horseshoe and other game gear with the food in the hope that the weather would defy predictions. By 12:30 pm, several strong downpours proved the folly of their optimism; rain restricted outdoor activities till the picnic ended at 4 pm (some did stay that long).
Weather notwithstanding, a pleasant time was had by all who attended; some 25 members and their families enjoyed conversing, networking and striking up new acquaintances with old and new faces. The picnic had an Australian theme: shrimp-on-the-barbie with a mango relish. Margaret Allen averted a crisis by going off in the pouring rain to purchase a supply of brats when it was discovered by the organizers that that particular must-have for a BBQ had been left at home.
