In June: Our Annual Indoor Picnic

An indoor "American Picnic" is the ticket for a
hot, humid Kansas City June day.
Come Share an All-American Family Picnic!
Where: The Writers Place, 3607 Pennsylvania, Kansas City, MO 64116
When: June 16, 2012--the Meeting starts 6:30 p.m.; the Picnic begins when the meeting ends.

Our annual picnic is traditionally held indoors, because Kansas City is usually hot and humid in mid-June, and some of our members have health issues that make it hard for them to be outside.

We want ALL of our friends who can come, to join us and be healthy and comfortable!

Bring along your favorite family games!
This year's theme is "An All-American Family Picnic," and our party planners are Susan Satterfield and Becky Rickart.

They plan to decorate with red-and-white checked tablecloths and entertain us with old-fashioned games, such as Yahtzee, Monopoly, Farkle, and others.

If you have a favorite family-type card, table, or dice game you'd like to share, please let them know what you're bringing (via the KAXFEN Yahoo Group)!

KaCSFFS will provide hot dogs, buns, chicken legs, and chicken thighs--as well as Italian sausages,  courtesy of "Zac" Zacarola. If you'd like to bring a different kind of meat, feel free to bring what you like!

KaCSFFS supplies some of the food,
but we need your help to make a successful Picnic!
We also need members to bring food in several other categories:
Salads (any type except broccoli, which KAXFEN never seem to eat);
Potatoes, Rice, and or Beans;
Other side dishes (deviled eggs, cheese and crackers, chips and dips, etc.);
Condiments and Relish; or

Please alert Diana Bailey about any kind of meat or other food you plan to bring! There is a sign-up opportunity on the KAXFEN Yahoo Group.

We provide plates, cups, and plastic tableware, but please also bring whatever you prefer to drink.

Our Annual Picnic is always a popular event. Come join us!
