Syttende Mai Picnic (May 2011)

2011 Syttende Mai picnic

The Syttende Mai Family Picnic was held on Sunday May 15th at Carderock Park in Montgomery County, Maryland. The picnic was a resounding success. The official attendance count of more than 400 was the largest attendance in recent years. Food and drinks were provided, and our lodge once again assumed responsibility for the syttende Mai family picnic food (other than the ice cream).

The family picnic requires a lot of volunteer labor. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our capable, energetic volunteers who showed up early, stayed late and worked in between. We hope to double our volunteer force next year to ensure that every volunteer can also be a guest during at least half of the picnic. Please, say yes when you are asked to volunteer to work a shift at the 2012 family picnic!
