After the singing, we cut up fresh cold watermelons. This is always a treat for the younger ones as the older people teach that long time traditional sport of seed spitting.

It is a lot of fun and the members seem to like to just get out and have an excuse to eat watermelon with each other. Everyone is and was welcome and we look forward to next years.
