3rd Annual Partner's BBQ - Lake Mission Viejo

Lake Mission Viejo is a reservoir created solely for recreation in Mission Viejo, Orange County, California. The reservoir is formed by an earthfill dam across the canyon of Oso Creek, which is part of the Trabuco Creek and San Juan Creek drainage basin. The lake is not fed by urban runoff; it is maintained so as to be safe for contact. Two beaches are located on the north and east ends of the lake. The lake is annually stocked with fish.

                                      Southern California Mission Viejo Lake Picnic

The Southern California Social Group met at Lake Mission Viejo, California May 21st for the fifth consecutive year. Forty three partners attended the social gathering and picnic overlooking the lake from the Northeast grassy area.  Prior to the partaking of wonderful food, everyone socialized and compared recent travels and family events.  Lake members Stan Newton, Tony Zarifis, and Larry McGrail provided their lake cards which allowed nonmembers  to gain access to this private lake. 

All the picnic food was provided by the Social Club Board Members under the direction of Stan Newton, Vice President, Hospitality.  The members who pitched in  included: Ron and Kay Salzetti, Mark  and Audrey Shultz, Ron and Janice Rhoads, Alan and Melissa Rogers, Stan and Cheryl Newton, Tony and Veta  Zarifis, and Larry and Cheryl Noble.  The menu included  salads, barbequed tri-tip roasts, European style sausages, hot dogs, cookies and a wide variety of beverages. Kay Salzetti  prepared  a special chocolate sheet cake treat which was enjoyed as a special desert. Ron Salzetti and MarK  Schultz  were the master BBQ chefs. 

By popular demand Mark and Audrey Shultz brought their famous hors d’oeuvres including delicious jalapeno poppers and their seven layer bean dip and chips.
After dining, as last year, Larry McGrail brought his “Tumbling Towers” game which is a challenge to the participant and fun to watch.

At the conclusion President Mark Schultz thanked everyone who attended and mentioned some of our upcoming events such as the August 13 Del Mar Race outing in San Diego.
