Our annual guild picnic will be hosted this year by Jennifer Justiss. We'll meet this coming Saturday, May 9, at 11:00 Jennifer's family’s beautiful farm near Chelsea is an idyllic setting for one of our favorite traditions.
Jennifer suggests bringing swimsuits and towels if you want to swim in the pond. Bring folding chairs or picnic blankets to spread out on the lawn to eat, chat, knit, spin, or crochet. We'll have "Show and Tell," so bring your latest masterpiece or current project (or latest treasure found at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, if you are there this weekend).
Families are welcome at the picnic. The guild will provide soft drinks and water, paper goods, and grilled brats (Barbara Tucker is heading to the German butcher in Atlanta for this picnic treat!). Please bring a salad or dessert to share.
DIRECTIONS TO JENNIFER’S HOUSE:
Jennifer says, “Travel east on Hwy 280 over Double Oak Mountain. Turn right on County Road 43. Turn left at the STOP sign, County Road 280. Take the 2nd right on Lewis Road. This will turn into a dirt road after about 100 yards. Keep going about 2 miles. You will come to a gate where there are 2 rows of trash cans and a row of mailboxes. You are almost there. Go through the gate. After another 1/2 mile or so, you will see a red fence and a small barn. Our house is just past the barn. Continue past the house, turn into the driveway and park along the drive or in the grass.”
