Please come join us for the 2019 GNA Community Picnic on July 20! This year’s event has it all: great food, live music, children’s activities, local businesses and farms, and much more. Brand new this year – drum roll please – a beer and wine garden provided by NW Beerwerks!
The picnic is held to foster community in the Griffin area. All community members are invited to attend.
Annual Community Picnic
Saturday, July 20
3 PM to 7 PM
Prosperity Grange and Tin Cup Golf Range
Current or newly joining Griffin Neighborhood Association members will receive a wristband for unlimited food and drinks. Non-members are asked to pay $5 per adult for wristbands while all children are free. Any new members joining the day of the picnic will be entered into a raffle for a $40 gift certificate donated by Character’s Corner.
Food offerings include hamburgers and hot dogs from your neighborhood grill masters, yummy seafood provided by Taylor Shellfish Farms, and assorted desserts. For $6 you can enjoy a refreshing adult beverage from NW Beerwerks. 10% of the profits from the tent sales of beer and wine will go to support the Prosperity Grange.
There are lots of great things for the kids to enjoy including a bouncy house, games, alpacas, and one of the Griffin Fire Department’s trucks!
Live music provided by Deb and Roger Hamilton.
