Dear Kol Haverim members and friends,

Please join us this Sunday,  September 30th, for a brown bag picnic and walk in Upper Treman park in celebration of Sukkot. Upper Treman park is about a 15-minute drive from downtown Ithaca, and an idyllic location for an Autumn gathering.

We will make the pavillion at Upper Treman park our Sukkah. Please bring your own lunch and join us for a picnic and celebration of Sukkot. After lunch, we will go for a walk in the gorge.

Please note that there will most likely be a $8 PARKING FEE per vehicle (unless you already have a state park permit).  If you would like to carpool,  the parking lot of Home Depot is a convenient location to meet up.

RSVP appreciated to
