4th July Picnic

Mark your calendars for Tuesday July 4th for our first Annual Picnic in the Park! We have notified the city that we would like to use the park on this day between noon and 6:00PM for a neighborhood picnic. So, if you plan to have company that day, just bring them up to the park and bring a covered dish or two! Since this hasn't been tried before there is no indication of how many people will attend. If it is anything like the Easter Egg hunt though, then we should be able to expect around 100 people. The plan is that the neighborhood association will provide some hamburgers and hot dogs but you may want to bring some of your own and a grill if you plan to arrive late. The idea is to make this event bigger and better each year.
If anyone would like to entertain the children with traditional games like bean-bag, egg and spoon or three-legged races for an hour or two feel free to bring along the items needed. We may be able to give some prizes to the winners!
This is an attempt to create an ongoing sense of community. The only difficulty we face is having a large enough grill to cook all the meat. If anyone can help or has any ideas, call Gary at 253-1359.
