2022 Annual Picnic

The dog days of August descended on the Society’s 2022 picnic, as temperatures topped out at 100 degrees as we convened at a new location –the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. No matter, the gathered crowd enjoyed a wonderful picnic spread, live music, and camaraderie as we honored the court’s most recent judges on the district’s bench.
