PARS MEETING and Holiday Luncheon
Saturday, December 5, 2020
Held at Brentwood Presbyterian Church, 3725 Brownsville Road, 15227.

Contest – Military Radios, in honor of the historic date of our Holiday Luncheon!

Since many members will be unfamiliar with your contest radio, it would be great if you can include something
in your display that adds context — manuals, ads from radio news showing your radio ‘in use’ and similar materials.

The Luncheon will be nicely catered as we have always done. Doors open at 10 for the flea market, lunch at noon.
Prior to the event, PARS members will receive a letter with dues renewal AND reservations for the Luncheon.
You are encouraged to bring spouses and friends for the same low, per-seat charge.
This is one of our largest attendances of any meeting.
The camaraderie at this meeting is a great way to wrap up another year of antique radio fun!

Please Note: This is a catered event that requires that you preregister and pay $18 per person attending.
all PARS Members will receive a registration form in their US Mail box in early November.
Please contact Jeff Pleva if you have not received the form – see Board Member link to left for contact info.

MAKE NOTE: The Picnic is on SUNDAY.

The picnic will be held at the North Park Roosevelt Pavilion which is the same as last year. Drinks, hot dogs and hamburgers, buns and condiments will be provided. It is asked that attendees bring a dessert or a dish to share, plus a folding chair in case more seating is useful. There is good parking adjacent to Roosevelt pavilion and it is an easy roll-up for anyone in a wheel chair. So please park in the parking lot next to the Roosevelt.

The contest will be Microphones. We all know that you collect them — so bring one in!

As in the past, family and friends are welcome and encouraged to come and enjoy the picnic. We have had 40+ attendees each year for the past several years and we expect the event to grow in 2020. The park has a great lake, pool, play grounds, and many hiking and biking trails. So if you want to make a day of it, there is LOTS to do! A good time is had by all who attend. Please mark your calendar.

From I79 you can cut to the east on 910 to south on Pearce Mill Rd.
From route 19 you can go east on Ingomoar rd to the park
Follow signs to Pavilion which is north west of North park lake
School house pavilion is on Walter Rd near a bend in the road, an old St Pauls Church and the Roosevelt Pavilion (Grove).
