GBTA Pop-up Picnic and Scholarship Raffle

By Mattie Yallaly, GBTA-St. Louis Vice President

GBTA-St Louis is excited to announce our first Pop-up Family Picnic. Free to all members, this is an opportunity to introduce your personal family to your GBTA family as we continue to grow.  Hamburgers and hotdogs will be provided with condiments, as well as plates, napkins, and utensils. Just bring a side dish (or bag of chips) and beverage of your choice.

Toss your ball glove in the car or bring that frisbee. Cornhole will also be available so come to the park and play! Or simply grab your favorite koozie to keep your drink chilled while catching up.

We will be gathering at the Skow Pavilion in Tilles Park on July 9th from 4pm to 8pm. Parking and playground are close by as well as green space to spread out and enjoy. Please take a moment to register yourself and family so we get a head count at
