Jim Butcher organized our annual picnic for many years before his untimely death in the late 1980s. After his death, the event was renamed the Jim Butcher Memorial Picnic in his honor, and we have invited his widow Joan to attend as our guest every year since. Mrs. Butcher has graciously accepted our invitation to attend again this year.

The Picnic Committee includes Mark Langworthy, Chair, Stan Clay, Judge Mark Pfeiffer, Josh Oxenhandler, Christina Devine, Gretchen Yancey, Lisa Key, Jason Simmons, Christina McCartney, Sander Sowers, Carlyle Foley and Norman Lampton.

The picnic is free to all members and their families/significant others. This year, as the picnic draws near, RSVPs will be requested to help the Picnic Committee plan the perfect event.
