Picnic Invitation Dear Friends,
The 9th Annual COMARA/IRAA & Intelsat summer picnic will be held on Sunday, 20th May, 2018, 12 pm-4 pm. Last year there were 75 persons in attendance. This year, we are hoping to reach the century mark in attendance. As always, this event is a lot of fun getting together with our old friends and colleagues from Intelsat/Comsat back in the day as well as current Intelsat for some good food/drink and camaraderie. There will be plenty of good food/drinks and raffle prizes for lucky winners. Your RSVP and payment for the picnic must be rcvd by Friday, May 11.

You're invited!
