< SAGES ANNUAL PICNIC
your calendar for Wednesday September 13, 2017 and
reserve the date for the SAGES ANNUAL
PICNIC. We always have a good time, rain or
shine, so will repeat the program of previous
years; Lawn games in the morning, BBQ Lunch at
noon and Bingo in the afternoon.
We will still be at Tiemeyer Park in St.
Ann BUT will be in a DIFFERENT location.
We will meet in PAVILION 4 on
September 13, 2017 starting at 9:00 AM instead of pavilions 1,2 and 3 as in
Pavilion 4 is new. The parking lot,
Pavilion 4 and the restrooms are all on the same paved level. No more mud
puddles to jump on a rainy day. The entire eating
and food service area is under one
roof. We will have the same delicious
lunch as previous years.
Pavilion 4 sits on top of a hill near the
lake so the views are terrific. There are shaded
paved trails. The lawn game area is mostly shaded,
pay attention Bocce players.
Remember to turn left after entering the
park from Ashby Road instead of keeping right.
Proceed up the hill in front of the Pool House to
Pavilion 4 on your right. Watch
for signs the day of the picnic.
Another thing which will be the same as
2016 is the price; $17.50 members and $19.50
