FSGW is excited to bring back our annual picnic where the FSGW community can mix and mingle. There will be dancing in the bumper car pavilion, open singing and jamming, and a potluck lunch.  This event is free so invite your friends and bring a dish to share!

It will be a chance to meet members of the 2024-2025 board. There will be a brief membership meeting reviewing the previous year of FSGW and upcoming plans for the year.

Admission: Free!  RSVP requested (but not required) so that we can have a sense of how many may come to the picnic.
