The welcome back picnic for the chorus and potential new singers is Saturday, August 29th from 4-6 pm at 11122 Nicholas Dr. Silver Spring MD 20902.  Please bring a dish since this is a potluck.  No one seems to have a grill so don't plan to barbeque.  Low cal healthy food appreciated!!  The location is within walking distance from the Wheaton metro station - come up from the metro on the side of Georgia Ave where the high rise Safeway store is - walk a block downhill and turn left on Amhearst, at University Blvd cross to the far side of University and walk down to a left on Nicholas Dr.  There is no light at Nicholas to get you across four lanes of traffic.  If coming by car, street parking is available.
