NAMI SUSSEX & IFSS PICNIC
29 members and friends attended the picnic on Sun. Jun. 2nd. Thanks to Mark (shown in top left photo), who took on the role of BBQ chef and grilled the burgers and hot dogs. Guests pitched in with desserts and side dishes so there was an abundance of food to feast on. It was a wonderful opportunity for all to enjoy some R&R and camaraderie, and have fun. Fortunately, the threatening t-storms that had been forecast held off, so it turned out to be a perfect day for a picnic.
