LWV Picnic

Our Annual League Picnic
Tuesday, September 9
5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Bethel Park, Ficklin Shelter

Our League will celebrate the return of our members and welcome prospective members at our annual picnic.

The picnic is a great time to learn what our committees are planning for the fall, to re-connect with other League members and to introduce potential members to what the League is about.

Bring a friend, neighbor or colleague to the picnic and introduce them to the League!

We will provide sub sandwiches, drinks and tableware. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share.

The park is located on Bethel Street on the south side of Columbia, behind Rock Bridge High School. The entrance to the shelter is on Bethel Street.

We hope to see you there!
