The 72nd annual Collett-McKay picnic was held on the grounds owned and dedicated to the family meeting, which are beautiful land dotted with shade trees. An imposing entrance with memorial plates on the gateway marks the grounds.
Two tables of photographs and curios, which created keen interest, were on display. There are never any programs at the picnic, no election of officers, or selecting a date for meeting. The families assemble the second Saturday in August, so that relatives and friends from all over the states know when and where it will be held each year.
The time is spent in visiting and many linger on the grounds until almost dark.
