Picnic 2024 – Sunday, June 2, 2024 – Mendon Ponds Park

Our Annual Picnic is the final GROS meeting before we break for our summer vacation: there are no meetings in July or August. The Picnic will be held on Sunday, June 2nd this year. We’ll meet at Mendon Ponds Park’s Hopkins Point Lodge from Noon – 3 p.m.

The Picnic is free to all GROS members and their families. The weather is usually pretty good, and Mendon Ponds Park has plenty of adjacent space for flying kites, tossing Frisbees®, etc. There is plenty of free parking and restrooms are nearby.

Everyone should bring a dish to pass: last names A-M bring a savory dish, N-Z bring something sweet. The GROS will supply water, soda, plates, cups, cutlery – but no food.

We’ll also be announcing the recipient of the 2024 Jeanne Kaeding Memorial Award.

It is also traditional that many members bring their own plants to sell or trade – a chance to find new homes for your extra orchids and to add some new ones to your collection. The GROS does not collect commissions on these Picnic plant sales.

The Show Table will be back in its open-air format, so don’t forget your summer-flowering plants. We’ll see you there!
