On Thursday, October 9, 1980, Patsy Cowan had attended a picnic in Chesapeake, Virginia from the late afternoon hours until around 7:30 pm. A local builder invited real estate agents and builders from the Tidewater area to a large cookout where plans for a new development, on the land where this picnic occurred, was announced.
