Hosted by Formed Families Forward, this summer fun family event is a chance to connect in person, help others through service, eat, play, relax and have fun!

We kick off with a brief community service activity for the whole family. Then all will enjoy a picnic dinner under the pavilion. Main dishes (pulled pork and chicken sandwiches and mac and cheese) and drinks will be provided; we ask families to bring a side dish or dessert to share. Following dinner, young children enjoy a magic show while teens and young adults engage in a fun activity of their own!

Parents and caregivers will have time to talk with each other and visit our exhibitors.

The park features playgrounds, sport courts and a skateboard park. Park amenities can be found at https://bit.ly/3gJNeTV.

Upon registration, additional information will be sent about the community service project.
