As you surely know, July 25th is St. James Feast Day and in honor of the occasion the Colorado Front Range chapter of American Pilgrims is having a picnic! The location is Denver’s Mamie Doud Eisenhower Park located east of South Colorado Blvd four blocks north of Hampden Avenue. (The High Line Canal runs right along the south edge of the park.) The picnic area is in the north central point in the park on Dartmouth Ave. The park has a nice playground. As always we extend a cordial invitation to spouses, SOs and any friends or acquaintances that might be interested in the Camino.
As you might imagine, this year is going to be different from previous years, what with masks and distancing. Following the rules and regs, masks will indeed be required generally but with the use of social distancing while eating. This will be a BYOE event: “Bring your own everything” - each party will bring its own self-sufficient picnic. There are several permanent picnic tables at the site but their use will be problematical with the 6-ft distancing requirement. Bringing lawn chairs or blankets is advised. And with public group size limited to ten people, we will ask that we spread out to honor that requirement.
We are suggesting that people bring something to share in the way of a story, a reading, a memory. We will have a time for those thoughts.
Park rules: Glass bottles and containers are prohibited. American Pilgrims’ insurance policy prohibits the presence of dogs at events. (Obviously exempting certified service animals.)
