Sunday, July 8th – Post-wedding Picnic

We have reserved the West End Overlook (Elliot Park) starting at noon on Sunday and will be hiring a food truck for catering (probably starting around 1:00). Join us for drinks, food, recovery, and a great view of the three rivers. No hard stopping time but will probably be hanging out until five or six.
