495th R/C Squadron, Inc. - September Picnic 2017

Picnic 2017 - A Family Style Picnic returns to the 495th R/C Squadron, Inc.!

 This year the 495th R/C Squadron, Inc. will hold it's annual September Picnic on Saturday September 9th, 2017 at the "Captain John A. Ogonowski Memorial Model Flying Field" beginning at 10AM, and running until 4PM. This year we again plan to host a fun-filled family style picnic with hamburgers, hotdogs, and chicken cooked on a large gas-fired barbeque grill. The picnic is the primary yearly social event of the 495th R/C Squadron, Inc., and it is also a great time for us to meet our Pinnacle Street neighbors, and the townspeople of Tewksbury! Please put the September picnic on your calendars and be sure to attend!! Please plan to bring your own blankets and chairs for sitting on the grass!

This year we will have a number of large tents set up at the field to provide shade for all our guests!!
