Rescheduled for Tuesday 7/23/2019, 6p-8p at the park
This annual event is fun for the kids, engages the neighborhood in improvement projects, and provides a fun venue for neighbors to get to know each other and catch up. If you have a new neighbor, please invite them to the picnic and forward this email to them.
FOOD & ICE CREAM: Due to our picnic funding being cut in half this year, we are unable to supplement the food costs as we have done for many years. We will still have a food truck available (see menu below – vegetarian option available), but the costs on the menu will be your actual cost this year. Please bring a picnic if you don’t want to buy food from the food truck. Bark and the Bite is a new local restaurant in the neighborhood that was kind enough to come without a minimum guarantee. We will still have free Izzy’s Ice Cream as in year’s past provided by DPIA. Water and lemonade will be provided by Town and Country Club.
DESNOYER PARK APPAREL: We are bringing back the most popular old classic T-shirt design and colors this year (see the image above), and adding a baseball cap to the available swag for purchase. T-shirts will be $10 for kids and $15 for adultsizes. Hats will be $15. We will also have the previous year’s design available at a discounted price of $5 while supplies last.
ANNUAL NEIGHBORHOOD RAFFLE: We will have raffle items from many local businesses again this year. Pick up your free (1-per person) raffle ticket at the DPIA table.
FOOD SHELF DONATIONS: Please bring an item or two to donate to our local food shelf – Keystone. There will be collection bins at the picnic for you to drop off your donations.
