Cabin. At 10:00 AM we will take a short hike. Or if anyone wants to they can lead a longer hike. At 1 PM a Covered
Dish Dinner is planned. It would be fun to have some yummy red, white and blue and green and whatever color dishes. If you call Sarah about what you want to bring, we will have a more balanced selection. Every one please bring their own plates, cups, and utensils for this event since the kitchen is not organized as yet. Also bring your lawn chairs and we will eat outside in the shade of the walnut trees. We have not been together at the cabin for over a year and so this is a special occasion for that reason also.
