Scheduled Programs for the remainder of 2015

Our Picnic Thursday July 16th at 6:30 p.m. this year will be at Camp Dearborn

at 1700 General Motors Rd. in Milford. If you are a Milford Senior you can get

in free with I.D. If not the fee will be $5.00 a car. After leaving the toll booth go

15 MILES PER HOUR to the Canteen on right. Turn right on Riley St. and follow

the road to the shaded picnic area before beach. I will have a sign at Riley St and

one on the back of my van saying MHS Picnic Here.

Hot dogs and condiments will be provided by the Board members. You should bring sunscreen, bug spray, drinks, place settings and chairs (optional). Since it is a picnic, instead of our regular assignments please bring picnic food that will go well with our hot dogs.  A—F– Side Dish,  G—Q - Salads,   R—Z— Desserts
