July 4 Friars' Picnic

TimThis afternoon the Friars in the greater Cincinnati area gathered at Josh_clifford_and_john_barker St. Anthony Friary in Mt. Airy for a cookout and some Dan mild sports. It seems corn hole and a baloon toss topped the "athletic" endeavors. The picnic also gave our new Postulants an opportunity to meet aBaloon_toss good number of the friars of the area. (On the left, Tim Tran and Dan Helfrich. On the upper right, Josh van Cleef, Clifford Hennings, and Bro. John Barker, O.F.M. Lower right, Roger Lopez runs to join in the ballon toss.)

The weather forecast called for rain late this evening (one report even said afterDeluge  midnight), but the picture at the right tells the story better than words. But the garage and carportChow_time served Carl_and_mom_2 as pleasant shelters for our meal.

A featured guest at the gathering was Mrs. Florence Langenderfer, the mother of Fr. Carl who is the Director of the Postulant Program.
