A little mist and Cape Elizabeth fog weren't enough to drive the annual spring picnic inside for a third straight year.
Even without the sun, a spring celebration
While the Silly Sunday service was winding down in the sanctuary on June 13, Tom Wilbur was already busy at the parsonage, grilling hamburgers, hot dogs and prodding the sun to make an appearance. Except for the sun, Tom got the annual spring picnic off to a flying start — and the rest was pure enjoyment.
A procession of members from the congregation, friends and even some new faces made their way from the church up the wooded path to the parsonage for our annual passage into summer. It wasn’t ideal weather — but did anyone really notice, or care?
Thank you to everyone who contributed food and took the time to greet newcomers and create a wonderful fellowship for everyone to enjoy!
Here are some images from the afternoon gathering:

Avoiding the early afternoon mist, Steve Hill, Bryan Connelly, Laura Young Connelly and Vickie Kennedy appeared to have plenty to talk about -- and eat.

Madison Keezer and Mariah Higley apparently had a secret to share.
