July News and Annual Picnic Details

Hello everyone,

Please take a moment to review the updated Calendar of Events and Photos pages, including slideshows from our involvement in the Memorial Day Parade and Burtner House courtesy of members Mike and Jan Valasek!

If you have photos from other events this year, please hold on to them. I hope to post a tutorial in the coming weeks so that all members may log on to our Photobucket and upload their photos to streamline the process and give me more time to maintain the rest of our blog.

Members, please plan to attend our Annual Summer Picnic and meeting next Saturday! In keeping with the tradition, the group will once again meet for the gathering at Don Collar’s Burnt Ridge Campground in Cowansville, PA.  Please refer to the driving directions below for detailed instructions.  

The unit will provide the meat and soda pop for the picnic.  Members are asked to please bring a covered dish, snacks, or a dessert to share with fellow members.  The picnic will start at noon.

The address for the campground is:
114 Collar Loop Rd.
Cowansville, PA  16218
