2016  Membership Picnic

New this year for the Club was our catered Membership Picnic, held at Rocks State Park in Harford County, Maryland. A special bonus of this reserved picnic site was the inclusion of a nearby private parking lot, for exclusive use of our members.

Our pavillion was located high on a hill overlooking this picturesque park.
