This event is still under design.   Check back once the details are official:

Proposal under consideration:

1130am:  WRSSAR Family picnic in the park.  Pot Luck – members bring and share fun picnic food.  Ovens and refigerator is available.  A fun day in the park with friends and family!  You can even bring your dog.

1pm:  Open To The Public:   Presentation on the US Census.
The idea is to promote this as a free educational talk to everyone in Cleveland.  Members can stay for the presentation, or remain in the park with your family or leave.

The actual details of this are under review and the date may even change.
