Annual PACCSA Picnic Scheduled for Saturday August 14th in North Park!!

Join PACCSA for our summer picnic on Saturday, August 14th!  This year we'll be returning to North Park in the Henderson pavilion located off of Babcock Blvd. near the swimming pool (click HERE for an interactive map of North Park).  Look for our bright PACCSA and Fischer signs near the Henderson pavilion parking area.  We'll kick off at noon (12:00 PM) with hotdogs, hamburgers and veggie burgers for everyone.  After eating, enjoy fellowship, fun games, and everything North Park has to offer with your PACCSA friends.  This event is open to all PACCSA members and their families.

Please feel free to bring a food item to share with your ski buddies!  Also, North Park hos lots of trails and playgrounds for the kids.  It's a great place for mountain biking, and you can canoe or kayak on the lake.  In addition, the Lake Shore Drive loop is a great place to rollerski, so bring 'em if you got 'em!
