The Picnic is ON Tonight at 6:00 PM - Rain or Shine

What's a scouting event without rain....

The weather doesn't appear to be cooperating for the picnic tonight, but there's plenty of space under the pavilion at Bear Creek Park!

Bring your umbrella and your rain jacket and bring your family!

We already have the park reserved, we already have the food purchased, and we only have 4 days of summer left.  Options to reschedule the summer picnic are pretty limited, so we're going to have the picnic tonight!

There's enough space under the pavilion for at least 60 people to sit comfortably at the picnic tables.
