YAD Picnic in the Park Offers Family Fun

As summer winds down, is there a better way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon than relaxing in the park with your family, running through the fountain, enjoying a leisurely picnic dinner, indulging in ice cream and visiting with friends – lots of friends?


Add some activities for the adults and kids including corn hole, arts and crafts, field games, and even a special PJ Library story time with Marsha Roth and a raffle, and you have the annual Jewish Community of Louisville YAD (Young Adult Division) Picnic.

YAD members are invited to bring their families and friends to Hogan’s Fountain in Cherokee Park on Sunday, August 22, from 4-7 p.m. for the final fling of the summer. This year’s YAD Picnic co-chairs are Hunter Weinberg and Melanie Wachsman are excited about the event and are looking forward to seeing everyone there.

“This year’s picnic is all about family fun and celebrating our Jewish community,” said Wachsman, adding that there will even be a few surprises.

“We’ll have family fun for everyone,” added Weinberg. “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.”

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 lisa.kaplin@jasonsdeli.com.

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 Mary Jean, 618-5309 or mtimmel@jewishlouisville.org, or RSVP online by clicking here.
