This year the picnic will be back at Bush Lake! There is a large shelter, (so we will have the picnic rain or shine), a playground, sand volleyball  court, and an easy walk to a lovely beach. Activities will begin at 10am; including races, balloon toss, and games for children and adults. There will be prizes for the winners! Enjoy a relaxing lunch at noon (bring your own lunch). Drinks (tea, coffee, water, and soda) will be provided by TCSC along with some shortbread. After lunch we will walk down to enjoy the afternoon on the beach (bring your own lawn chairs and towels). When you arrive, let the staff at the entrance know you are with TCSC, for free admission. We would love to know if you are planning to come. RSVP to Katie:, 952-500-1777.
