Summertime in Green Valley

Our summer picnics have been a lot of fun and we are planning several more. Our June picnic was on the East Center patio. Our July picnic was moved indoors due to the high temperatures (104!). Everyone has enjoyed the good food and fellowship. This month we ended up with a fun dice game called left-right-center since no one felt like playing pickleball (even in the shade!). Our August picnic will be a BBQ. Click on the poster for details.


A fun dice game followed the food. The winner gets all the nickles.
