Picnic @ Long Meadow Park in The Ramble in Asheville on Saturday, June 10 at 5:00 p.m.

This is the fifth year for this event with the first four years being a huge success. It’s a pot luck event with everyone contributing an appetizer, side dish or dessert. The region will provide the main dish, Broasted Chicken from Little Pigs BBQ in Asheville. Cost is $10 per person to cover table, chair and pavilion rental.

Long Meadow Park Pavilion in The Ramble will again host the event. This facility has permanent restrooms, and this year we have permission to park cars on the lawn behind the facility in a concours like setting. No judging of cars or prizes, just a nice setting to observe and enjoy.

First of all, we need people to bring a side dish, be it a salad or slaw or potato salad or baked beans or dessert. Second, BYOB, whether it is water, soda or beer or whatever you might like to drink. We will provide tables, chairs, tablecloths and main dish. We’ll picnic at approximately 6:00 p.m. and socialize until whenever.
