Annual Picnic – May 6, 2017

Once again the members of the AACA South Florida Region gathered for the annual picnic at Kendall Indian Hammocks Park. We scheduled it for May so that there was less chance of rain and it would be cooler.  This year it worked perfectly with temperatures in the low 80’s, low humidity and clear skies.

Nearly 50 club members came out for the fun, the food, and the company.  We saw quite a few antique cars because it was a dry sunny day.  Even Mel brought out his 1967 Chevrolet Corvette; which means there was no rain to be seen within the tri-state area

This year’s picnic was a catered affair under the chairmanship of Manny Garcia, Millie Garcia and Tomas Hernandez who also brought the table decorations.   Our members contributed by heaping two tables with a wide assortment of side dishes and desserts, all up for prizes and judged by an impartial panel of tasters.

Taking top honors for the side dishes were: 1st Place Cindy Endres’s potato salad; 2nd Place Cheryl Mullininx’s deviled eggs; and 3rd Place Bob Squier’s cucumber salad.  Top honors for desserts went to: 1st Place Carolyn Thiele’s Chocolate Eclairs; 2nd Place Carlos Alem’s key lime squares, and 3rd Place Maria Quevedo’s blonde buns

Thanks again to all who helped with the picnic, and all the members who by being there made this a very enjoyable event.
