Remember May 14th, 2011?
It was the FIRST FUMC FAMILY PICNIC
We are going to do a RE-RUN on Saturday, April 21, 2012
It’s all going to happen this Saturday, April 21st beginning at 10:a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
Think about how good hot dogs taste – with all the trimmings – popcorn, cotton candy and cookies? AND add to the fabulous picnic food… games and more games to play and watch and laugh. Visit with your friends and maybe meet new ones. Be sure to wear casual clothes, maybe a hat and tennis shoes (for you may want to play some of the games).
There will be horseshoes to toss. There will be washers toss… and croquet for those who played when they were younger, and for those who have never heard of the game. Of course, there is nothing like the water balloon toss…that’s the one game the kids LOVE more than any other.
There’s something for everyone, sidewalk chalk drawing, bubble-blowing, and whirly-gigs for the very young ones. There’ll be basketball and volleyball for the young and the very young-at-heart as well as just good ole’ sittin’ and talkin’ and laughin’.
You’ll enjoy taking part as well as watching as these activities get under way. We will be outside behind the church much of the time, so you might want to bring lawn chairs and /or a blanket for relaxing. There will be canopies set up for additional shade.
The rock, paper, scissors tournament gets underway in the Fellowship Hall after everyone signs up. Listen for the announcement by our very own “Vanna” to be sure to get your name on the board. Everyone will want to go in and watch. The “EVENT” will be projected on the giant screen so no one will miss seeing the exciting conclusion.
AND IN THE EVENT OF RAIN… not to worry… we have more games and alternate plans that will take place in the Fellowship Hall, just come on… even if it rains.
Remember, only three more days before the Second Annual FUMC Family Picnic takes place. Plan to come AND plan to bring a friend, your neighbors, friends from the other side of the county, whoever… everyone is welcome. Stay as long as you like or stay an hour or two, just come… It is going to be a fun time!
FUMC is a loving, giving, open-door church and we want to share God’s love.
