Lisbon Community Picnic Planned
Town Hall Park event on Sept. 14
Town of Lisbon — Volunteers from the Town Park Committee were about to wrap up their work on the sixth annual Heritage Festival on Aug. 10-11 at Lisbon Community Park when they discovered they had been given another assignment by Town Chairman Matt Gehrke.
Gehrke asked Park Superintendent John Greiten whether Park Chairwoman Marlene Kumitsch would agree to ask the volunteers to help with the community picnic scheduled for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14 at the Town Hall Park on Woodside Road.
The "Come Together" community picnic will be held in rememberance of the terrorist attack on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001, and in honor of the 911 memorial built at the Town Hall Park by Lisbon-Sussex area volunteers and businesses. New additions to the 911 memorial will be unveiled during the picnic.
Drinks and refereshments are free, although participants are asked to bring food donations for the Sussex Area Outreach Services (SOS) food pantry and cash donations for the 911 memorial.
Gehrke explained to the Town Board last week that the 911 Memorial Committee consists of about a half-dozen volunteers who need help maintaining concession booths and other activities related to the picnic.
Kumitsch said the Park Committee would provide the necessary volunteers.
