Picnic in the Park Flashback

Posted on: May 6, 2014 | Posted in: News

Eastown residents are you ready for the annual Picnic in the Park on May 17? We, at the Eastown Community Association can hardly wait to see all of you at this fun and interactive event! As we gear up for this year’s Picnic in the Park we thought it would be fun to reminisce about last year’s Picnic.


In 2013, we celebrated a beautiful May day together in the park. The Picnic began with our residents volunteering together to make their park a beautiful and welcoming place. Some residents picked up trash,  raked the soil,  dug holes to prepare the soil for planting gardens. We also laid fresh bark around the play areas and trees.

After making the park sparkle, we started to enjoy the real fun of the event. Our local restaurants donated tasty food such as hot dogs, vegetarian options, water, punch, cupcakes and more. The food was great and the company was even better.

Once our bellies were full, it was time to get to the games, bounce houses and competitions. Check out the pictures below to see how much fun children and adults had while playing tug-a-war and playing drums.

This year’s picnic is only going to be bigger and better than last year. We would like to thank our fabulous sponsors such as Yesterdog, Smitty’s, Kava House, CVS Pharmacy,  Connie’s Cakes, Terra GR, Chad Sytsma Remax/Sunquest, Cakabakery, Allegro Coaching,  Martin Remodel and Consumer’s Energy! Without all of these sponsors, this event would not be the same.

Everyone here at the Eastown Community Association invites you to come out to our annual Picnic in the Park on May 17! Clean-up will take place from 9-11 am, and the community picnic will follow from 12-3 pm. We hope to see you there!
