On June 23, the Professional Service Group of Central New Jersey had its second annual picnic. The festivities took place at Colonial Park in Franklin Township. Knob Hill Picnic Grove was a perfect location for the group, as it offered a cool gentle breeze and was surrounded by tall majestic trees providing much needed shade.
The tepid temperatures did not stop 50+ members and five employees of the One Stop Center from gathering and enjoying each other’s camaraderie and an abundance of homemade summer delicacies.
People were smiling, laughing, sharing stories, enjoying the music and forgetting about their job searches for the afternoon. Perhaps it was a little too hot to enjoy a volleyball or croquet game; however, there were five junior members (children) who shared a round of kickball. Five alumni members made a surprise appearance and spoke of how they are currently doing in their new positions. A great time was had by all.
Special thanks to Ms. Debbie Kull and her staff at the One Stop Center in donating the hot dogs, and to Angelo C., John F. and Jerry R. for being the grill masters. Thanks to Sonia Amanik, Ana Ippolito and Joyce Hosford for shopping and setting up. Special thanks to the Programs/Networking committee members for all their hard work in scheduling this event.
