NFC - Family Picnic at Vic and Deb Bandinelli's

For many of our members we dream about having that piece of nature that we can visit, enjoy, hunt, preserve and for some even live on.

Vic and Deb Bandinelli hosted our woodswalk in 2015 on their 37 acre family forest in Bliss, NY. Deb’s parents had originally bought the property in 1968 and Deb and Vic have been owners since 2001. Mostly pine woods reforested from farmland in the mid 40’s, they are now working on turning the property into hardwoods. For them their dream came true. This past year they built their retirement home on their property and have now moved in.

This year Deb and Vic will host our 3rd Annual Family Picnic at their home/property on Saturday August 25, 2018.

Eric Stawitzky, their consulting forester, will bring us up-to-date on their progress and lead a woodswalk right after our picnic lunch. We may also have a presenter on small windmills/solar power and possibly a piece of equipment from Larry Romance and Son.

We will also have a visit from the neighbors llamas, who will show off some of their finished pieces made from their “fibre”!

As always, the Chapter will provide hot dogs, hamburgs, beverages, paper products and condiments. A dish to pass would be appreciated!

We will plan for 10 am for presentations and of course our door prize raffles.

A reminder will be sent to NFC members before the picnic!
