The annual Eastside Picnic was held on August 22. Approximately 75 people attended, and despite the early morning rain, got some pretty nice weather. We served up burgers from Stewarts Meats, along with Gardenburgers and hot dogs. There were plenty of good sides with something for everyone, from salads made with garden kale to homemade Rice Krispie treats.
