Our club meeting was held on May 10, 2014 at our annual
picnic. Unfortunately it was not a perfect day as far as the weather, with a
little rain in the afternoon. But we had the best part of the good weather earlier
and all had a very good time. As always lots of food, fun, music by Steve and
lots of conversation. The Core Creek Park was an excellent location thanks to
Jim and Karen Thackeray. It was easy to get to for everyone. Just want to also
say a big thank you to Lew Thackeray for taking on the chair of this event.
Everyone agreed we should book this park again for next year’s picnic well in
advanced. We were in pavilion # 5, and if we book early we can possibly have
a pavilion with electric. A good time was had by all who attended.
All of the members know about the Bordentown Chevrolet Dealership display on May 31, 2014 form 11AM to 2 PM.
