Welcome back picnic!

This photo was taken at the 2013 Welcome Back Picnic.
Or it is "Picnic at Bedford Hills" (1918) by Florine Stettheimer.  
Dr. Murphy writes: "Don’t forget the Welcome Back Picnic is next week, Thursday September 11 from 430-6p. Please sign-up outside the 301 office in HM, so we know how much food to get. You can also sign-up to bring side dishes if you’d like. For now, we have burgers, all beef hotdogs and veggie patties on the grill menu.

"Please bring outdoor activities like Frisbee, too, if you have them!

"Staff, Faculty, Alumni, Students and families are welcome."

Veggie patties:  woo hoo!
