Aug. 10, 2021 Picnic

Fun and camaraderie filled the room at the 2021 GRASG Annual Picnic held at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Caledonia. A worker bee crew assembled kits, cut and sewed mittens for Santa Claus Girls. Socks were donated for the 'In the Image' shoe-giveaway for school age children. A dinner potluck brought in a few more ladies to share a fantastic potluck meal. Everyone agreed that the food was irresistibly delicious.

Show and tell and games followed the meal. A good time was had by all.
