Victorian Picnic at Oakwood Cemetery

July 18, 2008

 We had hoped to have a traditional victorian style picnic in Oakwood Cemetery, but heavy rains in the morning sent us to the Nunda High School gym. But the weather couldn't dampen the bicentennial spirit shown by those who took part in this wonderful event!
