Bring Your Family to Celebrate the End of Summer at the YAD Picnic

[by Jacob Efman]

Come celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of a great year of young adult programming with the Jewish Community of Louisville at the annual Young Adult Division Picnic in the Park. This year’s YAD Picnic co-chairs are Hunter Weinberg and Melanie Wachsman, who are really excited to host the event.

The YAD Picnic will be Sunday, August 22, from 4-7 p.m. at Hogan’s Fountain in Cherokee Park. “This year’s picnic is all about family fun and celebrating our Jewish community. We’re going to have corn hole, arts and crafts, and a few more surprises,” said Wachsman.

There will be lots to enjoy for all ages including a variety of field games, raffle, and a special PJ Library story time with Marsha Roth.

“We’ll have family fun for everyone and hope to see everyone there. My family and I have always enjoyed the picnic in the past. We want to encourage every member of our community to attend this special annual event. It’s a great way to catch-up with old friends and make new ones too,” said Weinberg.


Everyone is encouraged to bring a picnic dinner and blankets to the park, and YAD will supply the ice cream for dessert. There will also be a cake walk; so don’t forget to bring a cake, too.

Don’t feel like packing your own picnic? That’s OK. Orders placed with Jason’s Deli will be delivered free of charge to the picnic. To place an order, call Lisa Kaplin, 457-4959, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., or e-mail

Bring the family along, spend a relaxing evening with friends and meet others in the community. This event is open to the entire young adult community. For reservations, directions and more information, contact Amy at or 618-3310; or reserve your place online by clicking here.
