Unity of SA

RSVP, Please, to the Annual Picnic

All are welcome to attend the joyfully anticipated Unity of SA Annual CommUNITY Picnic. The picnic will be at La Escondida Celebration Center, 9888 Escondida Road, in Helotes, Texas 78023-9212. The date is Sunday, April 22, 2018, following the 11:00 a.m. service. We all look forward to this CommUNITY Celebration every year.

The newly remodeled La Escondida Celebration Center will provide us with plenty of space – the grounds are approx. 5 acres, with a 2,400 square feet pavilion with 6 bathrooms. Also available to us will be picnic tables and banquet tables for food and drink set up. The Berkleys are also providing ice, water, tea, and lemonade as well as plates, napkins, and eating utensils.

Be ready to enjoy their volleyball set-up, horseshoes, bean bag toss, and other games. There is a nature trail; just be sure to wear closed tennis shoes for this.

Please bring sunscreen, bug spray, and a side dish or dessert.

The main dish is brisket. Bring side dishes, preferably cold ones; such as potato salad, pasta, cold baked beans, veggie trays with extra carrots, Seven Layer Bean Dip, chips, and easy-to-eat desserts. 

Please bring to the Community Center all side dishes by 11:00 a.m., Sunday, April 22, at 11:00 a.m. so Dutch or Candy Berkley can transport them to La Escondida Celebration Center and have them set up when you arrive.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP below so we know how many people to prepare for.

Consider carpooling from Unity Church, Wonderland Mall, or the 1604 and IH 10 Park and Ride.  Directions are provided below.

NOTE:  Some cell phones do not get good reception in the area.  Be sure to bring an extra set of clothes for the kids! Closed-toed shoes are necessary for the Nature Trail.

La Escondida is a venue where Unity of SA’s beloved Candy Berkley, Expansion Team Leader, coordinates special events and retreats. She has invited us to have our picnic, at no charge, at this beautiful, peaceful location in the Hill Country. Please thank her and Dutch when you see them.
