Picnic Reunion

Celebrating 285 Years

This whole year our church is celebrating its 285th year. Not a long time compared to the churches in England and Europe, but decent for the US. Invitations were sent and given to people and friends who had moved. Some were able to come back and celebrate.

The day started with the Land and Seasons service. The music has a bluegrass and folk base to it and there's a lot of it! We sat in the balcony on opposite side where we usually sit. Very interesting. I'd explain why, but it's a long story and, well, you know...(giggles)...I kind of lost track of the details. (giggles)

After church there was a big picnic with lots of food. Music from the gazebo.

Photo displays and video montages.

Kids games.

Guessing games.
Xyra won the fruit slices. 


Had a great day! We won black bottom cupcakes during the cake walk. Kaya will tell you about the cake we took later this week.

What is your favorite thing to do at a picnic or reunion?

Best wishes,


  1. Looks like a fun day! I'd say my favorite things are chatting with people I haven't seen for a while and eating all the good stuff everyone brings.

    1. That is so much fun! Sometimes it ends up being like a wedding, you try to talk to everyone and still miss someone. :)

  2. I love picnics! I always love the food, and running around in the grass and playing good music on the radio. When we had our July 4th picnic, we played games like the 3-Legged Race and Blind Man's Bluff. That's always a groove!

    1. 3-legged races are so much fun! Did you ever do the game where you have to pass the orange holding it only with your chin? That's funny to watch. Tag and sardines are fun picnic games to play too. :)
