Members were invited to attend only if they had been fully vaccinated against COVID (i.e., two COVID vaccinations plus at least one booster). They gathered to enjoy a hamburger, a hot dog, and a soft drink with their fellow Old Guardsmen. FYI, the picnic was for Old

NOT by text message) not later than June 6. This year there was no admission fee as a celebration of our return to in-person meetings after COVID-19.
