Many thanks to photographers Mary Dunne and Jay Rathbun for sharing their photos which are all jumbled up (my fault!) but they still provide an idea some of the activities, especially the Hurling game, sack races, three-legged races, water balloon toss, straw search, tug-a-war, etc. Thanks also to Candace Dunne who chaired the picnic and to her committee which helped organize so much fun! A Thousand Thanks to everyone involved!
