The 2019 Annual Club Picnic was held Friday August 23, 2019. We had 42 members with guests this year, one of the best turnouts in several years. This years picnic was at the Henry Frank Park in Mishawaka, we had the pavilion reserved to ourselves, we had pleasant weather and no mosquito’s! No one went home hungry as there was pleanty of good food and deserts. Thanks to all those members who came out to support this club activity.
