Picnic Time is Near!

I hope you are planning on attending tomorrow's big Picnic in the Park! Don't forget to bring you gently used CDs and books to swap and clothing to donate. I want to give you Betty Blog fans the inside scoop:

(Suggested donation for this event is $5/person or $10/family which includes all the activities/light food. Funds will help Betty's ongoing work as your number one resource for greener living: keeping you informed via email and the newsletter about local green businesses, tips, and events).

*Food: You can look forward to Tim Henley's yummy peaches, other local fruits, salads, snacks from Rebecca's Natural Foods, and Virginia wine (limited supply). Ice water will flow freely!
*Trash Toss and Bowling
*Art: we'll be making windsocks, newspaper hats, origami all from recycled materials (including scrap paper from a local printing shop and recycled ribbons)

Participants in all the games will receive one "new to you" toy from the grab box and a homemade cookie.

*Kids' Scavenger Hunt (winners will receive a Betty bag!)
*Nature Walk
*Beach Volleyball, perhaps?

TREES ON FIRE performs!
Dance, listen, chill, celebrate

Note: We are striving for zero-waste at the picnic, so bring your reusuable beverage bottle! Recycling will be available.

See you there (Sunday, August 3, Pen Park Pavilion #3, 2-5pm)!
From everyone at BWB
