You’re Invited to the 2022 Picnic!

Please join us as we travel to the Como Park Picnic Shelter for this year’s picnic on August 20, 2022 (starting at 4pm, but festivities will go until approximately 8pm).

We are providing grilled entrees with all the fixings, as well as canned beverages. You are encouraged (but not required!) to bring a potluck-style dish to share. While we are providing plates and utensils, we’d love to see our friends bring their own reusables. Family, friends, and leashed, friendly, pets are always welcome.

The event starts officially at 4pm with food being served shortly after. We will have music, chalk art, children’s activities, yard games, and plenty of streets goodness. Who knows, perhaps you will help us plan our future events or be inspired to write a new post!
