ENY-ACS Executive Committee will host our annual Homecoming Picnic on Sept 15, 2021 at Hailes’ Cave Pavilion at Thacher Park. This will be a family-friendly event, so feel free to bring spouses/significant others and children.
We will be running the barbeque and the evening’s menu will consist of hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, veggie burgers, salad, chips and dips, and dessert. Those attendees with special dietary restrictions are encouraged to bring their own food for grilling. A variety of drinks (beer, soda, water, iced tea) will be provided, but attendees are also encouraged to bring their own beverages to share (no glass containers allowed in the park).
We will also have a number of fun activities, such as cornhole, ladders, and trivia games. Feel free to explore the Indian Ladder Trail, as well as other parts of Thacher Park!
We will be following the latest CDC COVID guidelines for gatherings, including social distancing. Given that the event will be outside, masks will not be required for vaccinated attendees. If you are unvaccinated, we ask that you wear a mask when in close proximity to others.
Pre-registration is required to attend. To register for this event, click here. Or copy this link: https://enyacs.eventsmart.com/
