Thank you Becca Moses  JA creative for the Banner!

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)

    1. We need someone to volunteer then send us the information… anywhere will be included once someone puts something together in that area.
