|On Saturday, August 23, 2008 the GE Healthcare International Affinity Picnic was held at Minooka Park in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
It included participation from a wide range of affinity/network employee groups in GE Healthcare showcasing the diversity of our
organization, great food, and fun!

It's tough to setup a picnic in the rain...
The crowds were smaller near the start of the event, but the die hard attendees were there and were going to have fun!

The food arrived including this REALLY LARGE pile of Fortune Cookies (you know they were invented in San Francisco, right?)

Donna and Anil were DJs for the day!
Fooooooood! There were rows for Asian/Chinese/Indian, Hispanic/Latino, African American traditional food and all were very tasty!
I think the peach cobbler was the highlight...

I think my plate might have been a virtual map of the world...
Although India did invent the abacus, it had little to do with the great game of BINGO! It began
in Spain around 1530.

How lucky I am at Bingo (I used my lucky numbers from my fortune cookie to find luckiest bingo card) - I won a soccer ball!
