Hallmark Woods Community PICNIC !

This Saturday, August 28, 2010, there will be a Family, Food and Fun picnic at Kingsway Court from 1 to 4 p.m.

These things are an annual affair in Hallmark Woods, an attempt to get neighbors out from behind their computers and TVs and together for a few hours of family fun and frolic. It's an event for the kids of all ages. There will be badminton (do kids today even know what that is?), probably a croquet court (another venerable pastime!), and other amusements. Basic eats – burgers, hot dogs, soft drinks, etc. – will be supplied.

And, oh yes, a Moon Bounce for the smaller kids.

You need to bring some food of your own – a favorite picnic dish perhaps – and chairs to sit in if you're of that age. And you need to RSVP to the organizers: either by a phone call to Shirley Gasch (number in community directory); or by using the contact form on the new community website.

See you there!

Post-picnic post: It seems quite a few people showed up, ate quite a bit, chatted up a storm, and even (especially the kids) played a few games. All-in-all a pretty fine day in the sunshine!

— Somewhere, however, during the festivities, a blue badminton racquet disappeared/disapparated. Any clues as to where it might be hiding would be most appreciated; send them to the HW webmaster or your editor at woodsblog...

Very Late Update: The errant badminton racquet surfaced some weeks later, hidden in a hammock! Glenn Peed returned it to its family and now all is well... and ready for the next picnic badminton game. - JL
