Okay, folks, the details are set:

Date: Saturday, August 5

Time: Noon to at least 3:00 p.m.

Location: We've reserved the Central Shelter at Heritage Park (Between 10 and 11 Mile Rd. west of Farmington in Farmington)for three hours at $20 an hour. If people think we need to reserve it for another hour, let us know, but we figure no one will have reserved it after that and we can probably stay. If not, we can just move out of the shelter and stay in the park. The shelter only has four picnic tables, so bring blankets or chairs if you want to. Blue4barb has been kind enough to front the money, so it would be great if people can chip in whatever they can the day of the picnic so she can recoup the cost.

Food/drink: Bring your own everything. We may pick up some chips and snacks, but you're on your own here for the most part. If you want to bring a dish to share, cookies, etc. feel free, but it's not required.

Family and friends are welcome.

SPECIAL GUEST: Nancy Skinner will be attending at least part of the event with the caveat that if something comes up that she absolutely cannot get out of, she may have to cancel. We should plan on expecting her to be there, though.

The parking lot for this part of the park is close to this shelter and this area is pretty separate from the rest of the park. There are two swings in this area, but there is a playground in another area of the park. If you have any other questions about the park itself, please direct them to blue4barb or go to the website at . Note that the shelter described here is not the one we'll be at. The large shelter has been reserved for the next year.
