Last Sunday, July 20th, the Gettysburg Region held its annual summer picnic at Codorus State Park amidst the beautiful rolling hills of York County in Pennsylvania. It seems we’ve had nothing but good luck this year in regards to the weather. There were a few clouds here and there, but it was a perfect day for sailing as the lake was full of boats. It also turned out to be a perfect day for car enthusiasts as well.
Lunch began around one o’clock, though a few people showed up well in advance to help set up. A special “than you” goes out to them. We should also extend thanks to everyone who remembered to bring a covered dish or dessert. Everything was delicious, and though we ended up having more than enough food, the dessert table was demolished by the end of the day.
Above all, we greatly appreciate the efforts of Annette Yost who made all the necessary arrangements for the day and Butch Saltzgiver and Jeff Amspacher who were our “grill masters”. Again, we thank you all for helping to make this possible.
We had such a great turn-out, and so many stayed ’til late in the evening to chat and soak up the atmosphere. With luck, next year will be just as good, if not better.
