All Wellstone Club members are invited to our actual picnic! We’ll provide hamburgers, vegi-burgers, hot dogs (and the accompanying condiments). We’ll also provide some beer, wine, and soft drinks. Please bring a side-dish, appetizer, salad, cheese and crackers, or other beverages to share. This is a wonderful event and we’re looking forward to seeing you all there! Please RSVP to Jack if you can!
