Announcing the First Annual Fall Family Picnic & Kickball Game
Hosted by the Fourteenth Judicial District Bar, therefore all attorneys in the Fourteenth are welcome! 
Friday, October 23, 5:00 p.m. at the Forest Hills Park, Clubhouse & Shelter

Top Ten Things to Know:

  1. The event is free to members of the Fourteenth Judicial District Bar and their immediate families. 
  2. Dinner is being catered by the fantastic Bullock’s BBQ. Expect fried chicken, barbeque, hush puppies, veggies, cole slaw and cookies –everyone’s favorites.
  3. There will be a DJ. You can suggest music by using the signup form below. 
  4. Jonathan Trapp is putting together the kickball game. Of course you want to play! 
  5. The registration form includes a way to express interest in trick or treating for members’ children. If interest is sufficient, it shall be done. 
  6. Sunset on October 23 is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. but we have reserved BOTH the Shelter and the Clubhouse, so we’ll keep serving food until we run out, or 7:30.
  7. Parking is available in the clubhouse lot and also in the gravel lot behind the tennis courts. 
  8. There will be a photographer. 
  9. You do not need to change clothes to attend. Come from work, come as you are. 
  10. Since this is a first-ever family function, there is no way we can be sure how many people will come. Therefore, an RSVP is strongly recommended if you intend to eat dinner. Click here to RSVP or type in the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BarFallPicnic
