PACCSA would like to send out a big "THANK YOU" to the fun folks who joined us for the annual summer picnic on Saturday.  Nearly 40 people came by to share delicious food, try out Skikes and rollerskis, and play fun games at North Park.  Both the weather and the warm conversations amongst ski buddies couldn't have been better.  We look forward to seeing everyone on the snow this winter!
