A great time was had by all at the 40th Glutton Memorial Day Pignic. We dedicated the memorial bricks for our departed members (the dead ones) and we dined on some really great food cooked by Chef Dan and his crew. I think this was only about the third or fourth Pignic where it didn’t rain. The temperature was in the upper 80’s and the pool was great! (Click on the pics below to enlarge.)
The 40th Glutton Memorial Day PIGNIC at the Club will take place this Sunday. Our first Memorial Day Pignic was the first year we moved into the Club on Jerries Lane, 1971. We’ve had one every year since.
BBQ, Beer, soda, and trimmings will be the fare for the day. Cost for the day will be $15 for adults and either $5 or $10 (conflicting price lists) for kids under 21 with kids under 6 free.
We’re going to have a band, Hazard County (Southern Rock) from 6 – 10 pm, so bring your dancing shoes.
We’re also going to dedicate the Memorial Bricks that were placed in the new patio area.
Festivities get underway about 11 am and will last until the wee hours. The forecast looks great, so we hope to see you there.
