Join in on the fun at Flying Squirrel Shelter in Pinicon Ridge Park on Saturday afternoon, July 29. Please register in advance at the gathering space table so we know how much to buy for the picnic. The last day you can reserve canoes will be July 24th.
Please note that Flying Squirrel is NOT where we met in years past. Flying Squirrel Shelter is on the EAST SIDE of the Wapsi River. Enter the park at the north entrance (Valley Farm Rd.).
Fellowship: You can come anytime during the afternoon for snacks, horseshoes, games, hiking, sand volleyball, playground for the kids, etc. Paddle boats and canoes may be rented in the park for $10/ hour plus $1 for life jackets ~ OR ~ you can just sit in the shade and enjoy the fellowship!
