Welcome Back Picnic - Thank You Everyone!

A giant shout-out to Manorlu board members Bill Bole, Meg DiMaria, Kim Paris and Michelle Keillor for their efforts in organizing, setting up and manning the grill for our Annual Welcome Back Picnic held this past Sunday. Also a huge thank you to all the members who brought the delicious selection of foods to share! It was a fun way to kick off the summer and catch up with summer friends. Always great to see so many people enjoying late spring fun at the pool!
