Let’s Have A

Saturday, 30 June 2018

Instead of another stuffy, too-long, I’d-rather-be-anywhere-but-here, meeting we are having a picnic at Cedars of Lebanon State Park. So mark your calendars now and plan to attend this summer soirée among the cedars.

We will meet at Shelter #4 (the one with the new ADA accessible parking pad between Hermit Cave and Cedar Forest Lodge) at 11:00 AM on Saturday, 30 June. All FCLSP members, past and present, and their families are invited. All of our park rangers and their families are also invited as are the park office staff.

Everyone should bring a side dish or dessert, and we’ll provide the burgers and hot dogs.
