Annual Summer Picnic

The Peoria Secular Humanist Society is hosting our second annual summer picnic! If you are new or interested in the group, this would be a great chance to meet some members and find out what we are all about. If you are an existing member but haven't attended an event in a while, this is the time to catch up with the rest of us. This is a family friendly event with a playground nearby so feel free to bring the kids! We are meeting at the Middle Shelter in Veteran's Park in East Peoria (see the link below for a map of the park showing the shelter.)

As before, this will be a potluck type picnic so, if possible, please bring a dish to share. I will provide coolers with soda and water and will also provide plates, napkins and eating utensils. Power outlets are available for anybody who wants to bring a crock pot. Posting the dish you are going to bring in the comments will help avoid duplicates. Please do not bring any alcoholic beverages as they are not permitted in the park.

Last year we had plenty of extra food, so if you are unable to bring anything, please come anyway as we would still love your company. We had a great turnout last year so let's see if we can have a repeat experience!

    I have to work until 2:00 (at a backpack distribution thing at the Dream Center. I hope the kids don't have to be exposed to religious propaganda to get their backpacks). I would love to stop by, but I don't think I will have a dish to share.

      I don't think bringing something is a requirement. Although if you'd like, I can pick something up on my way. I'll be shopping for what I'm bringing anyway, so it is no problem.

    I'll bring something. Maybe veggies and humus. Maybe fruit or some other kind of finger food. I'll check in here for shopping suggestions on my way to the picnic.

    Just to provide full disclosure, the shelter we have has baseball/softball areas, some open space for croquet, badminton or bean bags toss and a GRILL for cooking on an open flame. The electric outlets can provide power for electric grills, crock pots,etc. Extension cords will be provided by myself. So if you want to play any games and have the equipment let us know and people interested can come prepared for play. You can cook food at home and bring it to picnic and keep it warm with grill or crock pot or cook it there. Bring or make what you like there really is no limit to what you can bring because of the accommodations. I have rock salt if anyone has a hand crack or electric ice cream maker.

    We are free thinkers. Let the free thinking begin!
