World Class Picnic 2005 Pictures

The weather was perfect.  The Hula Monsters sounded great (especially with a certain guest soloist returning this year).  The food was great.  A bit smaller than last year, 47 folks plus 4 dogs, but everyone had a great time.  We thank everyone for the goodies that your brought, we thank Rosemary for the cooking, and we especially thank everyone who came. 

Janet & Ray

A few pictures from Janet and Ray.   Please e-mail us your pictures - especially if you have a picture of Janet in her "Moon Boots".

Note:  Links from thumbnails to full-size images were lost in a website relocation.  These links will be restored sometime this summer (2007).
