Come join us for an afternoon in the sun. This year’s summer picnic will be a POTLUCK at Great Island Commons in Newcastle with sangha members from Aryaloka, Portsmouth, Portland, Boston, and New York. Great Island Commons has several picnic areas, a large field for games, walks along the sea shore, a beach, a large playground, and spectacular views. Festivities will begin at 11AM and continue through the afternoon. Bring your friends and family….. bring a frisbee … bring a kite …. bring a bathing suit and towel ….. bring plates and utensils… bring a vegetarian dish to share for the POT LUCK LUNCH. But most importantly, bring yourself!
Great Island Commons is at 301 Wentworth Road (Rt 1B) in Newcastle, NH. For more information and directions, the park’s website is here: http://www.newcastlenh.org/pages/NewCastleNH_Common/great
