Join us April 7 for Picnic in the Park

BHNA Picnic In The Park

Plans are well under way for the exciting April 7th Picnic In The Park from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM and you are invited.  The festivities will take place in the northeast corner of the park area at the Barton Hills school/park.  We will be in the shade of beautiful trees and overlooking a part of our great neighborhood.  Round tables with colorful coverings and folding chairs will be set up when you arrive with your picnic supper.  There will be washer pitching, bocce and domino games for adults and bean bag toss and junior bocce games for the children. Fantastic music will be provided by Jennifer Ellen Cook and her awesome band. As an added bonus this year there will be a full moon just one evening before the event so we will be able to enjoy a terrific evening sky along with our picnic, weather permitting.

Parking for the Picnic will be along Barton Hills Drive and in the small school parking lots in front of and on the west side of the school.  Volunteers will be available to assist anyone needing a little extra help to get from the parking lot to the picnic site.  Please let us know in advance if you will be needing some assistance by contacting Sunny at ssluther@austin.rr.com or at 441-0748.

We look forward to seeing you at the Picnic.  So, bring your family and some neighbors.  Let’s make this a very special event for Barton Hills.
