Dear Friends,

On behalf of the Luncheon Pilot Club of Andalusia, I would like to thank every one who helped to make our annual Square Picnic a success.

The blustery winds and overcast skies did not dampen anyone’s enthusiasm and we were grateful that the rain held off until after the picnic.

A big thank you to the individuals, groups, organizations and businesses for purchasing tickets and joining us on the square. Thanks, also, to those who made monetary contributions and donated food items.

The square set-up was once again provided by the city’s department of leisure services. Thank you, gentlemen, for the tents, tables and coolers filled with ice. Your assistance is very valuable and we sincerely appreciate everything you did.

We have had so many positive responses for our entertainment. “Just Us Band” delighted every one with their toe-tapping country music. A big thank you to the band for giving of their time and talents.

The media coverage on the picnic was excellent. Thank you for the outstanding publicity before, during and after the picnic.

With the help of all of you, our friends, we exceeded the goal of this fund-raiser. The money will be used to help our local charitable organizations, club projects, and Pilot International, whose focus is on brain-related disorders.

Again, thank you to all who helped make the 2009 Square Picnic a successful and fun event.
