SGSCA members and guests had a ‘wheel’ fun time at this year’s annual picnic. Ron showed off his beautiful T-Bird and took guests for spin. Then we had one of the Surrey carts for a couple of hours and let guests take it out for a ride up and down the street. Special guests were our exchange students who shared their experience at Washington Business Week and then presented SGSCA with a plaque from the city and a special print for Barbara Lee in thanks. The students were given ‘goody’ bags filled with souvenirs. All in all it was a great day for bigos and polish sausage!
