Community picnic tonight

Potluck marks start of summer season

What better way to kick off the month of June than going to a community potluck? 

The annual Arrowsmith Community Picnic is ready to roll this Friday (June 3) at the Coombs Fair Grounds, 1014 Ford Road, from 6 to 8 p.m.

There will be activities for all ages, no cost to participate and everyone is welcome.

There will be live music by local band Counting Time, a 4-H petting farm, face painting, good old time chicken chuck’n, fire trucks, pony rides by Tiger Lily Farms and all kinds of other family games.

Everyone is encouraged to bring a main dish or salad to partake in the potluck picnic. Dessert and ice cream will be provided.

This year’s picnic also celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Coombs General Store on the corner of Ford Road and Highway 4A just before the fair grounds.

Don’t miss the official cutting of the anniversary cake, provided compliments of Candice and Derek Dewolf. The picnic committee also wishes to thank its other sponsors including the regional district, the Old Country Market, Quality Foods, McDonald’s and the Arrowsmith Agriculture Association.
