Three "road trip" church picnics with fried chicken, or barbecue, or both, and more, are coming up on May 28:

I am thinking about starting the 2023 calendar events a little later in the year than usual. I've been doing it for many years now. In the meantime, I am recommending that you subscribe to PolkaBeat's newsletter that will list the picnics as they occur, along with postings for great music and festivals in 2023.
