Church Lady Picnic with the Emmylous
June 26, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The ladies of St. Nesco Parish invite you to a “church picnic” at a lovely vineyard on a hillside that lies almost within the sound of the church bells of Barneveld.
Why a church lady picnic without a church? Because it’s just not right that we only get to eat good potato salad when somebody dies. And where you are on your faith journey should not dictate the frequency with which you get to eat Jell-O. And just generally, the words “hot dish” aren’t used enough anymore. (Meg Theno photos)
Pack a Nesco picnic and bring friends to share it all. Dress like a church lady –frock and apron, knee-high stockings rolled to the ankle, brown oxfords with a study heel — bring your knitting, needlepoint, cross stitch or a book and all the latest gossip from your part of the township (neighborhood).
There”ll be wine (yes, the ladies of St. Nesco Parish do love their wine) and music by the Emmylous from 1-4pm
Admission is free. Men and non-church lady types also welcome. The ladies of St. Nesco invite one and all.
We’ll plan to picnic on the terrace hillside, but if the weather chooses not to cooperate, we’ll picnic and gossip in the Back-barn Lounge.
Please remember that picnics are welcome, pets are not and carry-in alcohol is prohibited. Botham Vineyards is a smoke-free venue, buildings and grounds.
