R-UTN Picnic 2016

R-UTN_Picnic_09-13-16_007Tuesday, September 13 was a  perfect day for the Annual R-UTN Picnic at the Vanderbilt Museum in Centerport. We couldn’t have asked for more — the weather was delightful, the location picturesque, a good attendance, and delicious food. Visit the R-UTN Picture Gallery for more photos.

A special thank-you to our hosts at the Vanderbilt Museum. They made our picnic even more special by arranging a tour of the mansion and a Sky Show in the Planetarium.
