It's the TAABA Annual Picnic! Join us for an afternoon of fun and fellowship on Sunday, June 12 at Sidecut Metro Park in Maumee 1025 West River Road (signs will be posted at the park entrance). The afternoon kicks off with dish drop off (don't be late with the food!) at 1:30 PM followed by our picnic lunch at 2 PM.
Each family is asked to provide enough food to feed ten to fifteen people. The food will be shared "potluck-style" and placed on a general table for all to share. Don't forget to bring a lawn chair or blanket and serving items for your particular dish.
Music, games and more or planned for the afternoon. Churches are asked to submit an estimated number of expected attendees by calling 419-720-1995 by June 8 but reservations are not required. Plan now to join us for this annual event! Fun in the SON for everyone!
