Jun 19 - Picnic at Gilbert Lake State Park - 6:00 PM - Note this change: This year we have rented the Beach Pavilion, not the usual Briggs building. Items may be dropped off at the Handicapped Parking area, but event parking for the Beach Pavilion is further along the road, behind the bath house at the beach (see map). Entry to the park is free after 6 pm. We will eat at 6:00 pm, but feel free to come earlier and enjoy the beach. Those attending often take a walk together after dinner, on the little trail that runs around the lake shore. New members and families with children are especially welcome to come out for this picnic. There is a playground as well as the beach, with a beach house for changing; and the entire area is delightful to explore. Because there is no formal program, there is more time for visiting, so this is a good occasion to get to know other members better, in a very pleasant setting.
