FALL PICNIC


The CW annual fall picnic is scheduled for Saturday, September 22nd at the end of Connemara Drive from 4:00 until dark. Here are the latest details.

There will be a moon bounce that we expect to arrive by mid-day on the 22nd. Parents must supervise their children while in the moon bounce. The Board is asking that parents whose children use the moon bounce contribute $20. Donations of any amount will be accepted from any picnic attendee. 

We have two volunteers from the Board who are willing to be “grill-masters”. The Board will provide a limited number of hamburgers but we ask that If you have meat you want grilled, bring it and our grill-masters will prepare it for you. Plates and plastic utensils will be provided.

As well as the meat you would like grilled, we ask each family to bring a dish to share. This could be an appetizer, main dish, and/or desert. A limited number of sodas will be provided but we expect most participants will want bring beverages for their family/self. Towards dusk, there will be a firepit. Marshmallows and chocolate bars will be provided to make smores.

Joy Malmberg is our picnic coordinator. Please contact her (joy@tysonmalmberg.net) with any questions you have or if you can assist with set-up or clean-up.

We anticipate good weather on the 22nd and hope that you can attend even if for only a portion of the day. You will be notified by email on the morning of the 22nd if we need to postpone the picnic to the 29th.
