Dear Du Pont Employees and Retirees:

It is a pleasure to invite you to the Du Pont annual picnic at the Guion house on Sky Valley
Road Saturday, July 30. Throughout the day there will be competitive games (horseshoe
pitch, footrace, golf pitch, wood chopping, crosscut saw, etc.). The kids will enjoy the
merry-go-round, the train, the space walk and the cotton candy while the folks 12 years
and older may enjoy the Bingo games. There are over 60 prizes including a TV set, so there
will be a great deal of bingo playing in the barn.
Hamburgers, hotdogs, chili, baked beans, chips, lettuce, tomatoes, ketchup, onions, ice
cream, regular and diet drinks will be served by Hardees. Watermelons will be sliced starting
at 11:00 a.m. until the 250 large melons are consumed.
You may like to bring a chair to sit in while you enjoy the 3 teams of doggers and the
country/blue grass music bands.
Every hour on the hour the fishing truck will take the fishermen to the river, where they can
try to catch the longest or the heaviest fish and win a $10.00 first prize or a $5.00 second
prize. (4 prizes)
The DERA Picnic Committee hopes you will come and have a good day and would like to
suggest that you:

• Slow down
• Blow your horn in blind curves.
