If we decided to have the get together at the west end, would we be able to have it there by the cross?

It has been called Weiner Road for years and years. The Plaunts, the Gibbons', the Babcocks.......all the old timers know it as the Weiner Rd. And after some research that Mike White did, he found out that years ago, people by the name of Weimer lived on that road before Bibles, which somehow got misprounced to Weiner. Some real estate people came here in the 60's and bought up a bunch of property and subdivided it, and when they had maps made, they are the ones that put "Bible Road" on their maps, hence, how some people came to call it Bible Road. But I don't. The pronounciation is: winer, not weener. So now ya know!

I said west end, I meant north shore.
OKay, so its August 2nd on the north shore by the cross, at the end of Weiner Rd. How about a couple hours before dark, that way we could eat dinner before we go and still have a couple hours of light to meet each other. Then we could have a fire and stay til whenever. Very Happy
It will probably change a little by then, but what time does it get dark up there right now?
