WHAS Annual Picnic (NEW DATE)
Sunday, August 13, 2023, 02:00pm - 05:00pm

We’re all looking forward to our annual picnic scheduled for Sunday, August 13 weather permitting.  And we’re excited by two recent events and hope to share these with picnic attendees:  First, our resident ospreys have hatched their chicks.  The nest is visible from the yard and a telescope puts you right in the nest.  The noise from the talking parents can be heard for blocks!  I guess they’re happy parents!  Second, we have an acorn woodpecker in the neighborhood.   I have seen him at the suit cake a number of times this spring and summer.  This siting makes 64 species found at our home!

As in previous years, the picnic will be held at the Brandt residence, 18 Island View Lane in Cathlamet, WA.  Hours are 2:00pm to 5:00pm.  Attendees are asked to bring one covered dish (a salad, entree, dessert or snack) to feed 4 to 6 people.  Each person should bring their own plates, cups and tableware.  Ice, water, iced tea, napkins, paper towels, tables and chairs will be provided.  Sun and rain protection is available if needed.  

The Brandt residence is located on the east edge of Cathlamet on the south side of State Hwy 4.  To get to the picnic from Longview, look for the yellow 40-mph speed sign as you enter Cathlamet.  Turn left onto Island View Drive 50-yards past the speed sign.  To get to the picnic from the west, drive through Cathlamet on Hwy 4.  As you are leaving Cathlamet look for a yellow 55-mph speed sign.  Immediately turn right onto Island View Drive.  Stay in the right lane and drive all the way back to the end of the road (0.1-mi.).  There is lots of space for parking.  

So, mark your calendars for August 13.
