Picnic with us at Sugar Grove Nature Center!

For the third consecutive year, we are proud to announce that our annual Association Picnic will be held at Sugar Grove Nature Center! Those who have attended the picnic in previous years report that this is a superb location, featuring lovely grounds, a covered picnic area and convenient restrooms.

This year’s picnic is scheduled for Sunday, August 18, from 10:30 A.M - 6:00 PM. Lunch will be served around noon.

As always, our Association supplies and pays for all food and soft drinks. Please be advised that no alcohol is permitted at the Nature Center. If you would, however, like to bring a dish to share, we would welcome your contribution to our spread!

While we would love you to join our Association, you need not be a member to attend the picnic; just bring your appetite for Route 66 and and tasty picnic fare. Come and rub elbows with fellow roadies and you’ll see our passion in action! Please R.S.V.P. to Marty Blitstein (708) 444-1312 blitz66@earthlink.net so he can ensure there’s plenty of food to enjoy!
