All Strung Up

On June 5th, Hope Cottage is having our Annual Founder's Day Picnic.  No one knows for sure how long the event has been going on, but we do know Hope Cottage has had a picnic the last 30 years running straight.  Considering that we have 92 years of Annual Holiday Parties under our belts, I think it is safe to say Hope Cottage has had "dinner on the grounds" about the same amount of time. 

This will be my second picnic and it is a fun, casual event.  We serve hot dogs, cold drinks, cookies, games, entertainment and reunions.  I hear through the grapevine that "everyone" is coming.  I wish someone would define "everyone".  Event planners like to know - are we feeding 50 or 500?

Exciting this year because we have some of our older Hope Babies attending, along with some of our newest Hope Babies.  Definite photo op!

It is liable to be quite a show.  Right now we are running a campaign - if we get 500 people to like us on our Hope Cottage Fanpage on Facebook before June 5th, then ten children will be given the opportunity, at the picnic, to "string up the staff" - aka cover us with silly string.  I personally wanted us to have to do the macarena, but my co-workers quickly vetoed that.  AND we will video the string deluge and post it on our Youtube channel.  Fun times!

 I wonder what outfit goes best with silly string?
