Leading up to July 3, 2021,
the weather had been disagreeable. Record setting heat, wind and
rain for the past month or so made the possibility of more on the date
of our Independence Day celebration more and more certain. Coupled with residual caution
still in effect from the COVID virus, predictions on the success of the
annual picnic were not rosy.
Fortunately, the weather suddenly got cooler, less
windy and dry, all at once and attendance at the picnic stood at a rare
number somewhere between 65 and 70! In fact, so many people showed
up that, were it not for excellent pre-planning on the part of the social committee,
led by Bob and Winky Mitchell, it came close to
running out of hamburgers and hot dogs. To them, so much is owed
for the success of the event.
As always, sincere
thanks go to the participants who brought the delicious side dishes and
The following is from Bob Mitchell:
Special thanks go to Bill Schreier and
Sharon Lommel who helped Winky and me set up. While
setting up we found a long table with a bent bracket on one of the
legs,Bill had tools in his car and was able to repair the table. I
would also like to thank Scott and Blaine for the canon
on the river. I would also like to thank all those that stayed and put
away the tables and chairs and cleaned up. Thank you Mary McGuire
for her help serving the hotdogs and burgers. And a very special
thanks and love to Winky for all her help in preparing the
condenments. And thank all of those for the tasty side dishes and the
desserts. And thank you God for the fantastic weather.
