We did our 1 Love Family Reunion and had a great outside summer experience. It had been years since I was at possum creek and ot reminds me how long ago fishing and reading by the shore was the best part of a weekend getaway. This is a very good place to gather and BBQ with family and friends!
We rented a shelter on the farm for an informal baby shower. Everything was neat and clean when we arrived. The restrooms 50 feet away were clean as well. There were two grills and two trash cans, as well as nice picnic tables. The shelter was an easy walking distance from the parking lot. Everyone enjoyed visiting the animals as well. Thank You for helping us make this event a piece of cake!
