Annual D.C. Summer Picnic

August 5, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Alumni, current students, parents, and friends will gather for an afternoon picnic and games with delicious food, beverages, and more. We’d love to see you this year and enjoy the classic Viking game of Kubb, croquet, or just ol’ fashioned Ole conversation!

August 5, 2018 | 1-4 p.m.

Rock Creek Park, Picnic Area #1
3998 Spring of Freedom Street NW
Washington, D.C.

Bring a dish to share; burgers provided. Please RSVP by July 29, 2018.

Immediately following the picnic, D.C. Oles are invited to stay and share ideas for future events.

RSVP: Please RSVP by July 9, so we know how much food to make!

WHAT TO BRING: A dish to pass (salad, fruit, dessert). We’ll provide the burgers, hot dogs, and brats, water, and plates/silverware. Feel free to bring any portable family games to play.

CHAPTER EVENT PLANNING MEETING: Immediately following the picnic in the shelter for about an hour, members of the D.C. area chapter of Oles will gather to plan this year’s local events. Please join us to share your new ideas!
