Once again the Local 333 Annual Picnic was a great time for our members and their families to get together for some fun and relaxation. The children had a great time getting their faces painted; playing on the rock climbing wall, the bounce house and the giant inflatable slide; the mid-way was filled with games and prizes. The picnic started with the skeet shoot competition, with Foye Pierce taking 1st place, followed by Sam Capps and Matt Marfio taking 2nd.

Thank-you to the members, wives, and kids, for their entries in the desert contest. Diana Lake placed 1st with her lemon meringue desert, 2nd place went to Kelly Ehinger for her fresh strawberry cake, and 3rd place to Ashely Marfio for her s’mores brownies. Congratulations to Grace Marfio winning the children’s desert competition with her layered chocolate pudding desert.

We would like to thank the following members and their families for making this picnic a great success. Foye Pierce, Chris, Cory and Jackson Keck, Bruce and Susie Marfio for cooking the hamburgers and hot dogs, Sean Samson, Diana Lake, Joni Thomas, Price, Cathy, and Grace Dobernick, Dave and Kendra Line, Scott Furlong, Tom Patterson and family, Eric and Kelly Ehinger, Joe Hoesl for his giant fire ring and the wood he provided for the bond fire, Pat Stefanick, and Betsy and Ryleigh Mauk.
