Almost Annual WaterFire Picnic

When: Saturday, September 30, 2017, 6pm - 9pm
Where: Memorial Park, Providence River Greenway

Rhode Island Mensa will hold its WaterFire picnic this evening. Street performers, music, and of course smoke and flames! (Never heard of WaterFire? Check out www.waterfire.org.) Past WaterFire picnics have brought out Ms from several states, so come and meet some new people!

We'll gather in Providence, just north of Hemenway's restaurant, where South Water Street meets the Crawford Street bridge. We meet at the picnic tables on the Providence River Greenway in the park on the east side of the Providence River. Look for our yellow balloons. We'll bring tableware, cups and paper goods, and gather for a pot-luck picnic. There are also many food vendors: pastries, hot items, candied nuts etc. Some bench seating but bring a folding chair if you want one. The fire lighting begins about 6:30 PM.

For more information, contact Tom Padwa at tomp@qis.net.
