August 31st saw one of the best Monday picnics we’ve had since they started last May (2008)! We are back across the street from Binns Park, by the bus stop and it was one of the busiest and most attended picnics in recent weeks. We had a delicious vegetable and noodle soup that quickly disappeared before even cooling down, a few plates worth of PB & J sandwiches that everyone ate up, and dozens of cups of coffee and water that couldn’t be kept up with! Of course there was all the delicious pies, cookies, and assorted produce and it ALL was gone before 2pm, when we normally finish up. We also had a bunch of kids that were gobbling up celery with peanut butter, which seemed to be the favorite food of the day!
As always it was great to meet with friends for another picnic on another warm and sunny day, plus we met a lot more friendly folks who stopped by to share a bite with us or grab some bread or produce for their families at home. We also met some new folks who helped out for the first time and we hope to see in the future. It was one of the best times we’ve had, people were happy to have food, kids were merry, it was a beautiful day in every way.
Take care, enjoy the beautiful weather, and see you next Monday!
ps: pictures from this awesome day will be uploaded shortly!
