20th Annual Brooks Estate Picnic

July 14, 2018 (Saturday) - Noon to 3 p.m. at the Manor at the end of the Access drive, off Grove Street

This is our 20th Annual Picnic (that's a lot of hot dogs...) and we're hoping to make it extra special in 2018!

M-BELT supplies the hot dogs, burgers (and veggie burgers), and tonic (soda) and asks attendees to bring something from this list: junk food/snacks; salads; cookies; fruit; or other picnic food. (You do not have to bring food in order to attend).

In 2018 the event will include information about the Brooks Estate project, tours, our famous Raffle, and more.... (We hope to have music and some art activities.....stay tuned for more details!)

The event is free to all.

Support contributions and sponsorships are welcome (send tax-deductible donations to M-BELT, P.O. Box 328, Medford, MA 02155).

Volunteers for set-up (about 11 a.m.) and clean-up (after 3 p.m.) are always welcome, too.
