The event is open to everyone and there is no charge.

“We are excited to welcome old and new friends to celebrate with us, so please spread the word,” said Jessica Echols, executive director. “We have been in Troy for 26 years thanks to the many people who have served and who have been served by the programs offered through Partners in Hope. We are proud of our legacy of hope and feel this is a great way to give back and celebrate those who mean so much to us.”

The community picnic will kick off with a welcome and blessing at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 6 p.m. Throughout the evening, guests will be able to play games, win prizes, listen to music by DJ Mike Blankenship, enjoy a show by Happy the Clown and more.
