The PAA Picnic

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

was held at Channing Philbrook Park on Tuesday, June 16th.  Those in attendance feasted on appetizers, entrees, salads and yummy desserts brought by members. This event is truly a time to get to know your fellow PAA members better, or to renew acquaintances.  I strongly urge any of you who have not attended in the past to consider attending next year.  A short business meeting is held where a vote is taken on the incoming Board members by those in attendance. The PAA gavel was passed from outgoing PAA President Pattie Katchmar to incoming President Suzi Zefting-Kuhn.  Pattie was presented with a gift from the PAA in gratitude for her service as President. Then it was on to the games lovingly organized by Doris Kure and Chloe Bennett Larson.  Following is a sampling of photos taken during the picnic.
