End-of-Summer Neighborhood Picnic

Thanks to all who attended and contributed to the annual Old Third Ward end-of-summer picnic. The weather was perfect as promised, the food splendid and the company sublime. And the yellow jackets, for the most part, failed to find us! Next event: the annual dinner and meeting in January.
