Good afternoon! I have really missed our Heritage luncheons and field trips over the last year and a half. As you know, we were able to have our annual picnic at the Espey Farm last October. Let's do it again on Tuesday, October 19.
For those of you that have not been, this picnic is a Heritage group tradition. One of our most beloved members, Marty Espey, welcomed us every year to a picnic at her farm. Since Marty's death, her family has invited us to continue the tradition. Some of them will join us for the picnic. We now park and eat at Daniel Espey's home, which is right beside his parent's house. The parking lot is flat, and it is right beside the picnic tables. Daniel has a beautiful barn that can open on both sides, so we have a safe place to be if it rains. He has restrooms that are accessible without stairs.
The cost will be $5/person. I will order boxed lunches and have bottled water. Just bring a chair if you'd like to sit and visit somewhere other than the picnic tables. Please RSVP by Friday, October 15 by using the button below or calling the church office so I can make sure we have enough food. We will not be able to take the buses again this year. We can all plan to meet at the farm. The address is 6418 Greedy Hwy, Hickory, NC 28602. If you would like to follow someone, meet in the church parking lot at 11am. We'll all meet at the farm at 11:30. I hope to see you there!!
