SM CERT Picnic is Tomorrow!

This is San Mateo CERT’s annual BBQ to get re-acquainted with new and past CERT graduates from your specific ERD’s. It is especially valuable when we know the ones that live in your own neighborhood.

We will have the standard picnic fare, with hot dogs, hamburgers, and vege-burgers. We will make sure we have something for the vegetarians as well.

11:15 – 11:45 Welcome & Program Update
11:45 – 12:30 Lunch and Socialize with your neighbors
12:30 – 1:30 Bomb Squad Presentation
1:30 – 2:30 Group Photo & Meet your ERD Neighbors

The BBQ is FREE. All we ask is that you bring a dish to share with about 4-6 people. Please use the list below as a guide, and please do not over purchase:

If your last name falls between:
D – I Please bring beverages
J – M Please bring a dessert
N – R Please bring an appetizer
S – Z Please bring a salad
A – C Please bring chips

Due to the amount of people expected to attend, we suggest bringing a lawn chair or blanket to sit on while having lunch.
Please RSVP

We really hope to see you there and connect with your ERD Members!

Thank you,
CERT Steering Committee
