Annual Jim Butcher Memorial Picnic September 22 at Cosmo Park

The 2017 Annual Jim Butcher Memorial Picnic will take place on Friday, September 22, at the Dexheimer Shelter at Cosmo Park. A social hour will begin about 5 p.m., followed by dinner about 6 p.m. Smoked ribeye, bratwurst, hot dogs, and traditional side dishes, and beverages including beer, wine and soft drinks will be served.

Jim Butcher organized our annual picnic for many years before his untimely death in the late 1980’s. After his death, the event was renamed the Jim Butcher Memorial Picnic in his honor. 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, RSVP’s will be asked for, to help the Picnic Committee plan the perfect event. Please send RSVP email Mark Langworthy at langworthym@missouri.edu
