The 100th Anniversary Committee for the Cape Charles Memorial Library invites you to An Old Fashioned Community Picnic on Saturday, June 22, from 12:30 – 2:30 PM in Central Park.
This is the final celebratory event for the 100th anniversary and is planned as accessible to all and VERY family friendly. Come with your lawn chairs and picnic lunch at 12:30 PM (no alcoholic beverages please!) and settle in for a few hours of neighborly socialization and fun activities.
The committee asks that you bring a gently used or new children’s book for placement in one of the Little Libraries in town or at Kiptopeke State Park by the Friends of the Cape Charles Memorial Library.
The Almshouse Jazz Workshop will play in the gazebo for our listening pleasure, while from 12:30 – 2:00 PM there will be pony rides ($5) and face painting. At 1:00 PM watch the magic show by the gazebo.
Old fashioned children’s activities – three-legged races, egg carry race and water balloon toss with prizes – will be held at 12:45, 1:45 and 2:00 PM. Community groups will have tables for disseminating information and displaying merchandise.
To close out the celebration, Mayor Smitty Dize will read the Governor’s Proclamation, present the 100th-anniversary commemorative plaque and pull the winning raffle ticket for the anniversary quilt.
The celebration will finish with cake and ice cream for all.
Note: The committee does not have an alcohol permit so please bring other beverages for your picnic lunch. In case of inclement weather please look for a Flash email from the Happenings or check our Facebook page, Cape Charles Memorial Library 100th Anniversary
