|Just a reminder about the annual picnic at Merchant Mill Pond State Park on Saturday.
Canoe exploration trip down the millpond from 3:30 - 5:00. If you want to canoe and haven't signed up, please let me know ASAP. Space is very limited.
Fellowship time will be at the picnic shelter beginning at 3:30. Bring your lawn chair, sit back, have a cool soda, and enjoy each others company.
Games - horse shoes, water balloons, etc. beginning at 5:00. There is also a great place to roller skate or roller blade if you are so inclined!
Hiking though the woods and around the millpond is another options. Remember to bring bug spray.
Cookout will begin at 6:00 at the picnic shelter. Everyone is asked to bring a side dish and a beverage and / or dessert. Come, invite a friend, and enjoy a fun time of fellowship.
From Belvidere, follow Hwy 37 past Gliden. Turn right on Hwy 37/ 32. Go approx. 2 miles, bear left at the fork - Hwy 37. Go approx. 4 miles, turn right onto Mill Pond Road. Go approx 2 miles. This 1st Merchants Mill Pond sign is for the canoeing. To get to the picnic shelter, cross the little bridge and the drive way to the picnic shelter is on the right.
It will take you about 15 - 20 min. from Belvidere.
