Summer Solstice Party

The Jefferson Center's Summer Solstice Party will take place on Sunday, June 11th, 3pm at one of Jackson County's most popular destinations - Emigrant Lake. We have acquired picnic shelter "A" which is close to the beach, has private parking, nicely covered and shaded private picnic tables, easily accessible bathrooms and an open lawn area. The lake is a great place for bicycling, boating, paddling, and fishing.
Bring your luscious pot luck dish (serving 6-8) to share. Also, bring your own meat or fish as the Jefferson Center will be heating up the bar-b-que and will grill for you as you relax and enjoy socializing. Wine, beer and water will be provided by the Jefferson Center. Please bring your own tableware and drinking cup, preferably non disposable, as there is a sink with running water to clean these items before returning home.
Eating will commence around 6:00 p.m. but please come as early as 3pm to enjoy the Lake. Bring badminton, wiffle ball, frisbees, any outdoor game as there is large lawn area available that is mostly shaded. If you prefer a more leisurely activity bring your favorite board game to play (we will have a few available).
Please invite those you feel might be interested in learning more about JC as well as extended family members.
Note that there is a $4 entrance fee per car to get into Emigrant Lake so might want to plan to carpool.
We had this event here 2 years ago and the attendance was low due to an extremely warm day which scared a lot of people. However those of us that came out were amazed to discover that despite the heat it was a cool spot and a good time was had by all. So please don't be scared away if the weather turns hot.
