Summertime Republican Party Picnic in Eagle Mountain, August 7, 2013

Despite the threatening weather, there were 35 attendees at the annual Summertime Republican Party Picnic in Eagle Mountain on August 7, 2013.  The rain did succeed in lowering the temperature to a lower and more comfortable temperature.
