2019 Picnic Registration
In honor of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, the Dwight D. Eisenhower Society’s 11th Annual Summer Picnic on Saturday, July 20th, will have a World War II theme. Wearing World War uniforms or civilian attire is welcome, though totally optional. World War II living historians are encouraged to attend in uniform as well. Join us for the picnic with caterer, The Ragged Edge Coffee House, preparing some of the Eisenhowers’ favorite foods including Angus beef sliders. For the first time you can enjoy Mamie Eisenhower’s Deep-Dish Apple Pie for dessert! You can have a glass of wine as well. The Buzz Jones Quartet will provide popular World War II music. You and your guests may drive directly to the farm in your personal vehicle or, perhaps, a World War II vintage vehicle.
