The picnic committee has designed a wonderful day for all of us to get together to visit with old neighbors and meet new ones. This picnic is open to everyone living in Lakemoor Hills with lots of activities for children. The following is information about the day and activities in which you might want to participate.
Date: Saturday April 2, 2022
Time: 2PM to 6PM (arrive by 1:45PM to watch or march in the opening parade)
Location: Lake Hills Presbyterian Church grounds
Opening Ceremonies & Parade
The day will commence with a rumbling procession of the entrees in the car show bringing in our Grand Marshal, Ann Graf (1:50PM). Immediately after that, the parade will commence with a ribbon cutting by the Grand Marshal.
Special note about our Grand Marshal. Ann Graf has worked hard chairing the Dogwood Committee for 12 years. This is her last year chairing the committee, so we are sending her off with a big thank you and a Golf Cart ride in the parade!
