July 4 Friars' Picnic
This afternoon the Friars in the greater Cincinnati area gathered at St. Anthony Friary in Mt. Airy for a cookout and some 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 a 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 after midnight), but the picture at the right tells the story better than words. But the garage and carport served 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.
