Council Buys and Serves Pop and Water for Picnickers

Once again this year, Council 11369 provided the pop and water for the St Michael Parish Picnic, on the church grounds on Sunday, September 30.

It was a perfect day for the picnic, with over 200 people enjoying hot dogs, hamburgers, lots of side dishes and plenty of desserts.

There was plenty to do for the kids, with a clown and face painter.

And kids and adults alike enjoyed the demonstration by new Canfield Police K-9 Officer Rocky and his handler Officer Chad DeBarr.

Thanks to Brothers Jim Buck and Brother Paschal for manning the “pop stand” throughout the event.
