Our great annual Waynedale 'Picnic in the Park" is coming up on Saturday, August 23, 2014. We are excited because it is our 12th year for our families to gather for a fun-filled day in our local park.

This is a great tradition for Waynedale residents to support their community. The picnic is to encourage the children and their families to come out to our great park to enjoy the day. Our picnic is supported by many and in turn "free" to all that come. We generally have more than 1500 people come throughout the day.

The day begins at 10 am with sign up for free games children 1-13 years of age. They are able to play carnival games until the prizes are gone. Everyone may sign up for free door prizes that will be given away throughout the day.

Children may join in other fun things like balloon animals, moon walk, titanic and craft-making.
Entertainment by a local D.J. and free bingo.
The picnic food starts at 11am in our food tent. Pizza and hot dogs with lots of great snacks. Desserts of cake and ice cream given out until it is gone.

Some of the food is donated along with paper products and the rest is purchased with your donations. Remember that the donations we receive from our local businesses, neighborhood associations, and many friends of Waynedale keep our picnic going each year. Please check out the sponsor's names on the board located at the pavilion and thank them. Without these sponsors there would not a picnic for us to enjoy.

We must not forget the volunteers that help in many ways to get the day going, keep it going and to clean up after. We are still in need of volunteers, so if you can spare a day to make children smile then contact us now. If you have a group of adults or teenagers that can help, we really would appreciate the assistance. Just call or show up at the park by 9:30am.

Our Waynedale community is a great place to live and work, so come and join us on Saturday, August 23 to celebrate the day. Several churches, local organizations, and the National Guard along with many "vendors or businesses" come every year to share with us some fun and ideas. You can make a donation for table space and let us know about your organization or business. Remember no selling of products only given out of information.

Please come to our Waynedale "Picnic in the Park" and see what fun you are missing. You may call for additional details, questions or donations.
