First picnic of the new Rotary Year

Although persistent rainstorms drove us indoors for the evening, Dick and Mary Drumm hosted a sumptuous picnic-style pulled pork dinner on Thursday, the first official event of our 2017-18 Rotary Year. Additional appetizers and desserts from the guests made for a very wide variety of treats.

Next Thursday’s “Summer Casual” event will be a pool party and cookout at the Forth residence in East Greenbush. Please RSVP to no later than  Tuesday and, if you plan to attend, please bring a small appetizer or dessert. Kids welcome!

Here are a few scenes from this week’s event (which also served as a Gift of Life fundraiser):

Roberto & Flag
The lack of an indoor American flag didn’t prevent new club president Roberto Martinez from improvising for the Pledge of Allegiance to open our event.
Bill Dowd, on the mend and back among us, and his ever-vigilant keeper April.
OK, who gets first crack at the desserts?
Serious chat
A serious chat over some frivolous food.
A little something for everyone.
Andy Leyhane displays his one-handed dexterity.
ray and murray
Why is everyone so serious? It’s a party!
Staking out the cushy seats.
Pat & Stewart
And, staking out other cozy chairs.
Nothing like a good nosh to fuel conversation.

… Ashton Leyhane take make-believe turns at the wheel.
I’ll do without the wheels, thank you.
Is the “Monochrome Crew” discussing Roberto’s shirt?
