Day in the Park

It was a good outing this morning at Waverly Landing. There was a little nip in the air, and I think most of us enjoyed that, along with the fellowship. It was certainly good to see everyone. I’m sure Caleb and others will have more photos and commentary.

This is a really good spot with plenty of trees, power, restrooms, grills, picnic tables and a nice pavilion too.
