Everyone is invited to an outdoor potluck picnic at the van Schaick family "farm" in Schoharie County.  If you are an out-of-towner, we would only ask that you bring something easy to pick up, like a beverage or a dessert. If you are from around the area, we'd welcome a side or main dishes or a dessert. We will have chicken, veggie and regular burgers and hotdogs. We will have tents in case of rain. There will also be a performance of some union-y folky songs by Dave Crump, one of my dad's oldest friends.
