Summer Picnic 2019
All members of the Church of God groups are invited to a day of great food and fellowship on Sunday, July 14, at Lake Chabot Regional Park, 17600 Lake Chabot Road, Castro Valley, CA 94546.
Breakfast for the early birds will be prepared by a dedicated crew under Shane Modad’s expert guidance. It will be available from 9am till around 10am. Lunch will be provided and will be served between 12:30 and 1:30pm. If you have any questions please contact:
Gary MacPherson at (H) 510-523-8681 or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Lake Chabot can be busy on weekends but there is free parking on the street and a fee to park within the parking lot. You may enter the parking lot and unload your things, then return to park for free on the street. If you would like to do this, notify the attendant and first pay the parking fee; you will be given 15-20 minutes to unload, when you exit you will be reimbursed your parking fee.
The site we have reserved is “Elderberry”. It is immediately adjacent to the north end of the parking lot, approximately a 50 foot walk on a paved pathway from this drop-off area.
There is an adequate restroom facility for men and women a short walking distance (300 feet) from our picnic site.
We will again provide some activities for children. Lake Chabot has wonderful trails and a boat rental facility at the Marina about 400 feet away. There is a paved pathway for a gentle stroll or biking that runs a mile in either direction alongside the lake. Also, we will have access to volleyball and horseshoes adjacent to our site area.

Feast of Tabernacles 2019 Update
The church website is now open to receive Feast of Tabernacles registrations. Combined with registration is the hotel information for both Oxnard and Granbury and can be found here under the Welcome tab. It is anticipated that we will not be using either site for 2020.
Please go ahead and register even if you are not staying at the hotel. Making your hotel booking is important for the room commitment we have made to gain other concessions. As always, further planning will depend upon numbers in attendance at each site.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
