MoNNY Member Appreciation Picnic

Have you ever wanted to throw water balloons at your fellow MoNNY members? Now’s your chance!


We’re back for our second year at the gorgeous Saratoga Spa State Park for an afternoon of food, games, and MoNNY members! We’ve got an entire pavilion, near both a parking lot and the bathrooms (because we know what’s important). Join us for water balloon Battleship, bocce, and more!


Bring sunscreen, a hearty appetite, and towels and a change of clothes if you plan to get wet. This is a family-friendly event, open to all ages.


No charge for MoNNY members and one guest per member, additional guests are $10 each, all children under 12 years old are free.
