Descendants of
Conrad and Margaret Pickert
Family Reunion - Saturday, July 18, 2009

NEW PHOTO PAGE has been added, click at left! - Updated: 7/26/09

The 'Pickert Picnic' will be Saturday, July 18, 2009
at the Richard Young Forest Preserve,
Route 71, Yorkville.

Please continue to check this page for the latest information regarding the picnic.
PICNIC TIME FRAME: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. CATERED BUFFET DINNER: 1 p.m. - 3 p.m.
It's here! See you all in a few hours!
The winner is: (insert drum roll here) Catered and everyone Brings a Dessert to Pass.
I need to work out the final details and price with the caterer. I will let you know the cost when I get all the details and you can pay me at the reunion.
When I think Pickerts ... I think fantastic homemade pies! ;-)
For many reasons, it would be much easier if everyone brought their own drinks, then everyone can have what they like. Remember: County Preserve, no alchohol. (I have to say that)
For those of us in town, please bring extra chairs--if you have them--for the out of towners. There will be picnic tables, but doesn't hurt to have extra chairs even if we don't use them.

(Included in the listings are children's names, just a way for me to keep track, the children may or may not be attending)
