Picnic

It is time once again for the annual CWES Picnic. This year we will again be meeting at the lovely home of Bob Smith and Lynn Findlay. Located on the scenic Lewis River just outside Woodland, WA it is approximately 25 minutes from downtown Vancouver. Those that were at the picnic in past years will remember what a delightful place it is and what a wonderful time was had by all. Directions can be found in the July Newsletter and below.

CWES will have signs at each of the turns after you exit off I-5, so watch for them and be ready to turn. Since the location is down along the river, you may want to bring a sweater or light coat seeing as it tends to be a few degrees cooler along the water.

This year's menu will consist of barbequed salmon and barbequed sausage along with an assortment of salads, chips, cheeses, desserts, and of course, wine. We will be tasting wines from our inventory, accumulated over the past couple of years. It should be a great time so bring all your friends and family (age 21 and over).

You will want to bring your own chairs and tables, wine glasses, silverware, plates and any other utensils you might need to enjoy a great meal.

Costs for this year's event will be $30 for members and $35 for guests if reservations are made before August 13, 2015 (to be paid at the door) and $33 and $38 for reservation made after August 13.

To make your reservation contact Ray and Patricia Maddix: Maddix @ comcast . net, (360)944-2051. Please RSVP early; it will help in purchasing enough food for the event. Hope to see you there for a wonderful day of wine, food, and fun!

Make sure to get a nametag when you register at the picnic so you can partake in the food and wine..

"Doors" open at 12:00 noon on Sunday, August 16, 2015. Hope to see you there for a wonderful day of wine, food and fun.
