Last year we had a great turnout and everyone had a wonderful time. Hopefully we get back to normal weather for this time of year and we enjoy a beautiful day.
A lot of our members are doing a lot of planning and shopping to provide a great picnic, so please sign up on the website so we get a good headcount for planning purposes
We still need volunteers for various functions - set up, cooking, clean up etc. We need everyone to participate to make the event a success.
While the club is providing burgers and hot dogs for the main dish and water and sodas, we are looking for folks to bring potluck items for sides etc. Bill Owen is coordinating this so you can contact him at (562) 254-0989 or email at
as to what
might be needed.
Alternatively, if anyone would like to donate/subsidize or contribute items we will also need like condiments, paper plates or towels, plastic ware, garbage bags or clean up supplies let us know so we can coordinate with the shoppers.
The picnic will be held on the grounds of CantaMia at the bandshell. CantaMia is located at the south end of Estrella Pkwy, the main gate being just beyond Willis Rd. If you need to use GPS, use the address of 17700 W, Star Point Dr., Goodyear 85338. Anything else may send you to the wrong entrance. Make sure you bring chairs, and pop up tents if you desire, If you have any outdoor games (Jarts, Cornhole etc) bring them along.
