PARA Summer Picnic – August 12, 2023

Please join us on Saturday, August 12 for the annual PARA picnic at Cold Stream Dam in Philipsburg.

We will gather at the upper lakeside pavilion located above the band shell. The picnic will get underway around noon. Burgers and franks will start coming off the grill around 1:00 pm.

The pavilion is equipped with AC power and a long shelf where crock pots can be plugged in.

What you can bring:

  • A covered dish or other food item(s) (see what others are bringing in the list below)
  • Lawn chairs
  • Jackets

Darren is planning to arrive early to set up his HF rig and antenna. Other members are welcome to bring their own rigs and join in the fun. There are numerous tall trees to support wire antennas.

The club will purchase enough ground beef, franks, and buns to provide each person with one hamburger and one hot dog. In order to buy the proper amount, we will need to know how many people are coming.


If you are planning to attend, please contact Bob on or before August 9 to let him know the number of persons in your party and what food item(s) you’re planning to bring.
