    Monthly Picnic at Bear Mountain

    New York Sunday - August 19, 2007     10:00 AM

    NY MONTHLY PICNIC



    A most enthusiastic community response to a recent survey for the possible institution of a monthly family potluck Picnic in the NY Lower Hudson Valley has encouraged us to inaugurate it as follows:



    You, your family, and your extended network of friends are invited to attend the next monthly Picnic at Bear Mountain State Park (http://WWW.hudsonriver.Com/bearmtn.htm) ON:



    Sunday August 19th, 10:00 A.M. to dusk.

    (The Picnic repeat itself on the third Sunday of every month thereafter, all year LONG.)



    Please bring your own foods, refreshments and games, and share them as a potluck lunch.



    The exact picnic location is up to 200 yards to the right of the Lodge, sandwiched between our usual Sizdah Bedar courtyard and the Lake. (Those who could make it as Early Birds, should kindly take over as many picnic tables for the rest as you could !)





    Please forward this notification to everyone and print and distribute it to those who have no access to Internet.



    Regards,



    Roya N. Sedighian
