2013 Swiss Picnic
On Sunday, Sept. 8th members joined for a potluck, music, great conversation and even some football. Brad Zumbuhl and Grace Huber came in first and second in the Duck Races. The sun was out and the kids were happy to get into the creek to catch the ducks. Thanks to Kim Cook and her helpers (pictured above), all the kids had a great time with the obstacle course, egg toss, water balloon toss, hay scramble and ice cream sundaes! Hope to see you there next year!
