New York Members Picnic Together at Lakeside
Batavia members visit one of the area’s most beautiful parks.

NEW YORK—Fifteen members of the Batavia congregation of the Philadelphia Church of God relaxed at Lakeside State Park in Waterport on July 10 for a summer picnic.

Under the blue skies on the shores of Lake Ontario, members found shelter beneath a few trees. While the burgers and hotdogs grilled, most of the men tested their golf chip-shot skills.

After the meal, most members participated in an 18-hole game of disc golf. The game took them through the woods and out into the sun several times.

Marilla single Janessa van Order said that before the social she hadn’t thrown a frisbee in years before the activity and thought the social was a fun experience.

Niagara Falls member Karen Croisdale said she enjoyed the quietness of the park while relaxing with fellow members.
