Dorothy 264/C6111, writes us that "We had a great time in Usery Mountain Park, NE of Mesa, on Sunday May 26 at the Arizona Circle Picnic. We had 13 people with Cody IDs and their spouses, plus 2 boyfriends and one not really a cousin, but related by marriage on my other side (niece by marriage of my grandmother who was a Cody member)."

"The weather was cooperative, warm but not hot, with a nice breeze. We had a ramada reserved for 5 hours, fried chicken from Albertson's, plus a lot of potluck dishes. We were even joined by past ICFA President Gerald 270/3453 and Marilyn."

She concludes with "Bill and I basically organized it, but everyone had a hand in it and all had a great time! We're all ready to organize something for next summer!"

Good for you all! That's the grassroots, pioneering spirit of just do it! Dorothy and Bill have been Active Members for years, working on the 2010 ICFA Reunion in Tucson, serving on the Executive Board and editing the Cody Review.
