On September the 15th we will have a Meeting / Picnic, This will be at the
Gower Park off Laurens Road in Greenville, near the Haywood Road area.
We’ll get a couple of important Club things out of the way, then its Fun time.
As you can see from the photo this is a family friendly park, so bring a friend
and your family. Also bring a meat for the grill, if you are a meat eater, and a
side dish of your choice.
More info to come, mark your calendar. C U There, Rick
