Join us! The Buckman Community Association hosts its fourth annual BUCKMAN SUMMER PICNIC at Colonel Summers Park. Everyone is welcome to join us Sunday, August 11, 2013 from 4pm – 8pm for food, fun and music. The Picnic is a great opportunity to interact with the local community and to meet your neighbors. We have something for everyone to enjoy, including inflatable activities for the young and old alike, several picnic activities for everyone to enjoy, the opportunity to win door prizes from businesses in the local area, and music from local Portland artists.

The picnic is funded through private donations from community members and local businesses, including Honest 1 Autocare, Keep Buckman Free, and BCA Board members Brandon Sanders and Susan Lindsay.  We are continuously looking for more donations to keep the Picnic free and fun for all.

If you would like to contribute any donations or volunteer for the event, please contact Jamie Vann at jamievann@outlook.com. More information can be found at http://www.buckmanpdx.org/picnic.
