2015 Southeast Neighbors Picnic/Festival Report


The 2015 Southeast Neighbors Picnic/Festival on Saturday, September 12 was a great event. Hundreds of neighbors turned out despite the 90 degree heat and early evening Ducks game. 12 units of blood were collected, many bikes were registered, crazy amounts of ice cream was eaten, awesome music was heard, information was shared, kids played, and it was an all around great day in the park.
