ANNUAL PICNIC AND SWAP MEET
NOTE: THIS IS THE FIRST TUESDAY OF THE MONTH
The chapter’s annual summer picnic this year will include a swap meet. We will be meeting at the Veteran’s Memorial Park pavilion in Richfield around 6 pm. The chapter will provide burgers and brats, buns, beverages, plates and silverware. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share. And bring some swap items if you want to participate.
The Swap is open to anyone. Let your friends know. You do not have to be a Twin Cities Chapter member to attend.
Veteran's Park has hiking trails and a miniature golf course. So bring the whole family. The park is conveniently located just 2 blocks south of the Portland Avenue exit off of the 62 Crosstown Highway. There is free parking at the pavilion and more parking at the adjacent ice arena/pool. We hope to see you all there!!
