Annual Picnic

August 13th saw about twenty members meeting at Jo's for our annual picnic. As you know, calligraphers are also great cooks and the potluck luncheon was no exception!  Fabulous company, wonderful food and a presentation of our first  "Friend of Alphabeas" certificate.  The day started a bit cool but soon warmed up with full sunshine - a rarity this summer!

Get the important photos up first! just part of the dessert table. The ice cream and cones would come out later!

Yes, those are Frank's famous sausage rolls and Nan's amazing pizza in an hour! along with some barbequed salmon, several salads, sliced chicken, and so much more..

Yes, we do love to share a meal together!

 In no particular day Blogger should make that a topic or I should spend some time trying to figure out how to add multiple photos in my order....

Another annual event over for another year. Up next is our September meeting, the program is carving eraser stamps. And the new Broad Edge will be 'hot off the presses'!

Thanks to Eileen and Fay for the photos!
