Swiss Picnic 2012
Over 55 members attended this year's Swiss Picnic! Thanks to Kim Cook and Tami Fluke, the kids had an exciting day with an obstacle race, hay scramble and ice cream sundaes. Our newest member, Omar Zuber, won first place in the Duck Race and Joe Kaech took second. The potluck was wonderful and there was a lot of great conversations.
