Freeland Picnic reservations needed soon

The reservation deadline for the 2014 Community at Holmes Harbor picnic is fast approaching.

Anyone wishing to attend the annual event must make a reservation by Saturday, July 19. Call Carol Hanna at 360-331-7663, or email achhcontact@gmail.com and provide names, a telephone number, and the number of people who are coming.

This year’s picnic begins at 2 p.m. Sunday, July 27, at the picnic site below the clubhouse at Holmes Harbor Golf at the end of Harbor Hills Drive.

According to a recent news release, this will be one of the best picnics to date as Roaming Radish will be serving traditional picnic fare with a gourmet twist.

A no-host bar will also be available.

The event is a favorite of community members as it’s a chance to enjoy a good meal, dockside scenery and chat with folks from various backgrounds. It’s also a time to catch up on the latest news about the community and its assets, such as the golf course.

Costs for the meal are $12 for community members, $15 for nonmembers and $7 for kids ages 5-12. Youngsters 5 and under eat free.

As usual, a golf cart shuttle will offer service between the parking lot and the picnic site. Lawn chairs are OK.
