As stated in a recent email, the Appalachian Region New Member Social and Annual Picnic will be held on Saturday, June 22nd at 5:00 pm .

This is the seventh year for this event to welcome our newest members and socialize with old friends. It’s a pot luck event with everyone contributing an appetizer, side dish or dessert; bring your own beverage The Region provides the main dish, Broasted Chicken from Little Pigs BBQ in Asheville. The event facility, Long Meadow Park Pavilion in The Ramble, has permanent restrooms.  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!
