FLORIDA - CLAIRTON PICNIC - FEBRUARY (every year) - FT. DeSOTO PARK



THIRD SATURDAY IN FEBRUARY




SEND YOUR PICNIC PICTURES (or unidentified peoples' names) TO bochters@verizon.net, ANNA MARIE WARD BOCHTER (CHS 1960) AND WE'LL INCLUDE THEM ON THIS WEBPAGE.





Hello to all. Well, I wasn't at the Clairton Florida Picnic 2017. My brother, Phil Ward and his wife Mary Lou, told me they attended the picnic. They said the weather was windy, chilly, and I think they had some rain, but I'm not sure. Jim Stevens sent some pictures. Jim always provides us wonderful pictures so we can share the picnic vicariously to see who was there. I missed seeing everyone, but maybe next year.

Ron Isger takes care of all the details for the picnic. He reserves the shelter, signs everyone in, provides nametags, and keeps the master list of who was there in the current year and who has attended in the past along with the last year they attended. Keep in mind that this picnic is held every year on the third Saturday of February at Ft. DeSoto Park. Once inside the Park, look for a sign to the specific picnic shelter - Shelter 14. You can share in the joy of the picnic through the pictures below. Check them out and provide us with missing names. We will update this website as we receive more pictures.

If you have any pictures that you took at the picnic, please send them to Anna Marie Ward Bochter (CHS'60) at the above e-mail address or contact me to find how to send them to me non-electronically. As usual, your help is always needed to identify the people in these pictures. I always make an attempt at identification, but I don't know all the people and sometimes the angle makes it difficult to positively identify someone. Please help by letting me know of any corrections or if you can add any names I missed...Anna Marie.



NOTICE

Please note that alcoholic beverages are not permitted in Ft. DeSoto Park. There was a visit from a Park Ranger during the 2011 picnic where he issued a warning. If attendees are caught with alcoholic beverages in the future, a hefty fine will be issued. Please adhere to the Park regulations during future visits for the Clairton Florida Picnic.


If a person has a valid Disabled Parking Permit, they are not required to pay the parking fee of $5....but they must display the permit when entering the park.
