Cascade Zydeco Annual Picnic
Saturday, August 15, 2015






It's coming up on Cascade Zydeco Picnic time! Join us for our annual picnic and meeting at the home of Ben Groce in beautiful rural Camas, Washington. Ben says he'll move the cows out of the parking area, just for us. Ben Groce and Vicki Louthan are providing hamburgers and hotdogs (thanks Ben & Vicki!), and CZ will provide plates, napkins, cutlery and some non-alcoholic beverages. We'd like you to bring food to share and any fancier beverages at your own discretion.

Meet your new CZ Board, congratulate the winner of the Golden Gator Award, hear the State of the CZ Union address, eat and dance!
