Lyme Picnic Heard around the World
What is this?
The Lyme Picnic Heard around the World is a get together that Jeff Rainey. Eric Pascal Kind and Lisa HIlton are working on making happen. We thought it would be nice for Lyme friends to all get together for some face to face time. Not to protest, not to raise awareness, but simply for the fellowship and getting to meet some of your online friends.
There is a Facebook group to organize some “get togethers” worldwide for Lyme patients.
Here is a list of all the get togethers by country and state. These are the people who volunteered so far. This list will keep growing so keep checking back in or let us know if you are interested in organizing one!
(We are just getting started so there are no set times or locations yet but we will add them as they get set)

Lyme picnic at my handicap accessable home, Saturday September 3rd. I live in the country, just outside of Research Triangle Park, NC. We can stay inside all day if it’s too hot. I have free range chickens, so the ticks count is diminished! I’ll provide veggie burgers and gluten free NY style Tomato Pie.
