Summer is a promissory note signed in June,
its long days spent and gone before you know it,
and due to be repaid next January.

- Hal Borland


That beautiful season the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
Lay as if new
created in all the freshness of childhood.

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

At a park, the beach, the forest, or in your backyard, a picnic generally means packing all the food and utensils and taking it outdoors! The less you have to cook at your favorite picnic spot the better. Barbecuing is fun, but carrying raw meat in an ice chest is potentially dangerous, and a hassle. If you have your meal pre-made, all that's left to do is eat and have fun!

Don't forget to bring along a game to play...
a croquet set, or even a simple frisbee will make for a fun afternoon!

Company Picnics:
Have a committee arrive early for secure a location, if its in a public park, arrive very early... and begin setting up.
Excessive decorations are not necessary, but signage leading to the picnic is helpful.
Have plenty of ice on hand to keep food & drinks cold.
Water balloon tosses and volleyball are fun for large groups. Purchase prizes for game winners.
There are lots of great camping/park areas to rent for the day, with huge barbecue pits and pools and all the trimmings.
Have an Ice Cream Social!
Live music is always a hit!
Rent a Dunk Tank! ...the employees will always remember dunking the boss!!!








Mosquito is out,
it's the end of the day;
she's humming and hunting her evening away.
Who knows why such hunger arrives
on such wings at sundown?
I guess it's the nature of things.
- N. M. Boedecker, Midsummer Night Itch
