This year’s picnic is at Lion’s Park, Aug 12, from 4-7 p.m.
The Annual Summer Picnic has been held at Lion’s Park by the ENA for as long as any current board members can remember (so at least 20+ years, if you can confirm earlier please let us know!). It is sometimes a small affair, and other years larger with organized activities (We apply for Neighborhood Block Grants but do not always receive them). It always includes a main dish (burgers or hotdogs) provided by the ENA, with neighbors bringing side dishes and desserts. Various local businesses, such as Eastside Big Tom’s, Ralphs Thriftway and the Eastside Olympia Food Co-op usually donate items as well.
If you are interested in supporting the neighborhood in this event, here are things we need;
VOLUNTEERS: help is needed both ahead of the date and at the event. We’re especially looking for cooks! Ideally, we have two people at any one time prepping, cooking and serving.
FOOD!: Bring a dish or some chips or whatever you can contribute. 🙂
Contact us if you’re interested in any of these opportunities!
