Annual Piscataquis Pomona Picnic Fun and Fund Raiser

Ending with the traditional marshmallow roast

It’s the… seventh? annual fun and fundraiser at the home of Walter and Janice Boomsma…

The official start time (eating!) is 6 PM, but you can arrive any time after  5 PM to  sit and commune with nature, throw some horseshows, feed mosquitoes… .  If you can find the Abbot Post Office, you can find the Boomsma’s house… just head down River Road across from the Abbot PO… it’s the second house on the right, 17 River Road.  Bring lawn games and lawn/folding chairs! It’s a Potluck Picnic… the grill will be going and Walter and Janice will provide hot dogs and hamburgers and should have plenty of condiments… you might bring a casserole, salad, dessert to share. We usually have plenty of food, so don’t think bringing something is a requirement!

The auction probably won’t put Christies out of business, although we always have some classics… it’s really sort of an opportunity to get rid of junk, have some fun, and raise a little money for worthy causes. Remember, you do not have to be a Grange Member to attend this… and it’s a great opportunity for some good old-fashioned fun with some good old-fashioned folk. Well-behaved children are welcome and might be enlisted as auction helpers. Poorly behaved children will be auctioned off as slaves.  Any questions about the event can be directed to Janice or Walter either by email or at 876-4131. Bring a friend — if you don’t have one come and make one!

Note that this will be an opportunity to contribute to the Smart Starts for Students Collection Box or Can… bring some school supplies (pens, pencils, erasers, gluesticks, etc.) to help our kids!
