Jacksonville Community Picnic
Immediately following worship on Sunday, June 9, 2013
This is going to be a GREAT time! Jacksonville has a beautiful, little park just off Swamp College Road
and it will be the site of our annual church/community picnic on June 9, 2013. The Jacksonville
Community Association will join us in sponsoring this fun event. It will be a great chance to get better
acquainted with people from our own congregation and our neighborhood. Bring an extra-large dish to
pass and invite your friends too. We have lots of things planned to make the day especially enjoyable.
The church will provide hotdogs, hamburgers, rolls and condiments. The Jacksonville Community
Association will provide beverages. We will have bubbles, back yard games, hula hoops and more to
provide fun for all ages. There will also be live music provided by Greg Grodem and his Zydeco band.
Please bring your own dishes and silverware, your best dish to pass, lawn chairs and anything else you
think will add fun to the festivities.
