NEXT "MEETING": Sunday, August 4, 2pm
Picnic at the Yarnells

Dear GOSV:

Life can be bittersweet, and this coming weekend represents a perfect example. On Saturday, members can mourn and celebrate the life of Eileen Weissman during a memorial service at the Piscataway Funeral Home, 1-3 pm, 732-968-2828. Then on Sunday Fred and Jane are hosting the summer picnic from 2-6 PM, rain or shine, where members can rave about or bemoan the midpoint of this yearís gardening season and still have some fun. I didnít know Eileen well, so all Iím going to say is that from my vantage point she always wore a big, happy and sincere smile, and thereís no better indicator of a life well lived. May Barry and family find peace and solace during this very difficult time.

Regarding the picnic, all the details are on the web site. The cost remains only $5 and attendees are asked to bring an item based on the first letter of their last name. A-H, desserts. I to R salads. S to Z appetizers. Everyone is encouraged to BYOB. Friends and guests are welcome. Please RSVP by Wednesday 8/1 to Fred or Jane Yarnell at 908-722-4759 or 908-797-5711, with the number of people planning to attend. Checks made out to GOSV.
