On a cool and breezy Sunday in October, over 300 CCA members and friendsgathered at Tropical Park for CCA’s annual fall picnic. It was a wonderful dayto meet and greet old friends, make new friends and enjoy the park and greatweather. Families brought chairs and tables and blankets and spread out aroundour pavilion to enjoy the day together.Aunt June Chin said grace before everyone enjoyed the delicious lunch of green salad, pasta salad, fricassee chicken, and rice and peas catered by Gillyand Shirley Simm. There were also hot dogs and watermelon for everyone toenjoy. Lola Chen face painted the children from 10 am to 2 pm.
