Peace Valley Park Picnic – Saturday, September 14, 2013
Galena Village-Pavilion 2 (Near Boat Rental)
1:00 p.m. – Sunset
This year, we decided to hold the picnic on a Saturday, so that more people will be able to attend. Since August is a busy time for vacations, Sandy and I decided we should wait until September to hold the picnic, and we spent the morning checking out various places. After checking out several places, we chose the pavilion near the boat rental because we think it has something for everyone. The trail around the lake is just over six miles, and you can easily walk it in less than two hours. The pavilion is close to the water, you can rent boats or launch one of your own, there is a restroom nearby, and after a short walk there is a playground for anyone who has small children. The pavilion has 13 picnic tables and a large grill. We can also drive right up to the pavilion to drop things off instead of lugging everything. Please note the pavilion does not have electricity. As always the club will provide the meat and drinks. Please add what you are bringing to share, so we do not have a lot of duplicates.
We hope to see you there!
