Fall Family Picnic — 10/28

The WPSA Fall Family Picnic will be held on Saturday, October 28th, 11:00 am until 4:00 pm with lunch being served around 1:00 pm. The picnic will be held at the farm (Groaning Rock Farm) of Bette Rose and Mike Bowers, ’63, near Commerce, GA. If you haven’t been to one of these picnics before, come! It’s worth the trip!

Bring your spouse, bring your kids, bring your friends. The Bowers have a really cool farm with real animals and a big field to play in and a log cabin that’s more like a log castle that’s full of more West Point memories than you can imagine!

Come see, come eat great food, come fellowship, come just to relax a little. Too far away you say? It’s an easy drive and the countryside is beautiful in Jackson County. Come to the country! It’s not too far!
