Sugar Grove Nature Center (near Funk's Grove)

Our picnic will be held in the picnic shelter at the Nature Center.

The Association will supply food and soft drinks but if you would care to bring a dish to share, that would be appreciated.

We ask that you kindly R.S.V.P. with the number who will be attending so we can have an accurate head count for food.

R.S.V.P. to Marty Blitstein
