St. John’s Church Picnic – August 17, 2014

Come join us on Sunday, August 17, at Friendly Hills Grange Camp for worship at 10:30 am followed by a potluck lunch. There will be games, bingo, swimming (weather permitting), fun and fellowship for young and old.

Bring your favorite dish to share at the potluck. Table service including plates, plastic ware and cups will be provided. Drinks (coffee, water, lemonade) will also be provided.

We are planning on having 35-40 prizes offered for bingo winners. If you would like to contribute a prize or two, please leave it/them in the box on the stage at St. John’s. You could also bring your donation the day of the picnic.
