Please join us for the BYBA Annual Bring Your Own Picnic Dinner Meeting & Silent Auction!

We are celebrating the club’s 29th Anniversary!

When: Tuesday, June 28th @ 5:30PM - 8:30 Rain Date - June 30th Please check website & email for updates if the weather looks iffy. 

Where: Sherwood Island State Park - Main Pavillion


Vehicles with CT Plates are free.  Out of state plates will have a $7 admission fee.  Please plan accordingly.  We plan to have someone shuttling individuals with out of state plates in from the nearby commuter lot as needed.

What to bring:

  • Your own picnic dinner, complete with beverages & necessary utensils. (We will have water available.  Please note, alcohol is not permitted in Sherwood Island State Park.)
  • Blankets/Chairs - there are picnic tables but sometimes those aren't very conducive to socializing with large groups.
  • Sunscreen &/or Bug Spray
  • Your generous donations!  Items can be bee related but do not have to be.  We are happy to include anything in the silent auction that you feel others might bid on.  Examples can include but are not limited to: Items in good condition from your house or yard, gift cards/vouchers from businesses that you frequent, crafts or food items that you've made, or maybe some pollinator-friendly plants!
  • Your wallet for purchases in the silent auction.  There will be plenty of cool stuff and all funds support the club's many activities.  We accept cash, checks or cards.  

Please remember, no pets or alcohol.  Thanks!

Please register so we know how many people to plan for.  Families and guests are welcome.  Please include them in your registration count. Then visit SignUp Genius to see how you can help!

There will be a special prize raffle for all that have signed up! 

Remember that this meeting starts earlier than our usual Monthly Meeting.  You may bring your items for donation to the Silent Auction beginning at 5:30.  Also, the park closes at sundown so we need to be cleaned up and out before it gets dark.

We look forward to seeing you there!
