Picnic in the Park

On Thursday, August 17, we enjoyed the great outdoors with our annual club picnic at the shelter in Jewett Park. It was a beautiful summer day and everyone enjoyed the delicious food and great company. We were happy to have such a great turnout, including State Senator Julie Morrison, as well as several students from the new Interact Club at Deerfield High School.
 
Our speaker was Debi Leer from Nicasa, a not-for-profit behavioral health services organization that we have supported for a number of years now.
