Payson Fun Run

by Paul Koreneff

Join us for a relaxing drive to Payson for a nice mid-morning break at Culver’s. We will park in the back of the Culver’s parking lot to exchange stories. You will then have plenty of time for other activities …

What you need to bring:

  • A smiling face and cheery disposition
  • Stories on how you have handled life during the stay at home order
  • Your appreciation of the BMW brand – its good points and its not so good points
  • A cloth mask that effectively filters the air you breath, but that allows you to converse. Of course you will need to take it off in order to eat and drink and even when driving. We encourage you to wear it at all other times.
  • A chair to sit on (standing on chairs, especially folding chairs, is not always good for your health)
  • A hat, so that you keep a cool head …

When placing your chair and while moving about, we ask that you remember the social distancing guidelines and do not encroach on the space of others.

Feel free to bring your own food and beverages or you can purchase them at the Culver’s.
