Volker Neighborhood Association
Annual Volker Picnic
Sunday, July 24th 5pm
South Meadow, Roanoke Park
Our annual neighborhood picnic will be held in the South Meadow of Roaoke Park (across the street from Community Center) on Sunday, July 24th from 5pm-8pm. Look forward to live music and celebrating summer with your neighbors at this open-air, socially responsible outdoor event.
The VNA will supply hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, ice cream, picnic tables, and large jugs of filtered water to refill your cups. We invite you to bring a potluck item to share as well, but respect that not everyone may feel comfortable with community food sharing options. If bringing your own personal meal is more your style, just do that instead.
Although we will have paper plates, cups and utensils available, we encourage you to bring your own plateware, cups, and utensils. And if bringing a dish to share, please bring a serving utensil. Don't forget a picnic blanket and/or lawn chairs too.
Also, we can always use some help setting up and breaking down tables, cleaning up, etc.. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing to help out, or just volunteer at the picnic.
