Center Changes King Day Picnic to Feb. 2

Jan. 18, 2008 – The St. John Community Crisis Center invites the community to a celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a Picnic for Peace. The Center is dedicated to preserving his ideals and keeping the dream alive. The day of the picnic has been changed to 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 2, at National Park Ball Field.
The event will feature reggae band Inner Visions, free food and drinks, a dunk tank, fun and games, arts and crafts and much more. There will also be various community groups such as the Boy Scouts, Young Democrats, Department of Labor, the Delegate to Congress's office and many more sharing their information. All youth groups are especially encouraged to attend. The Love City Pan Dragons and the Love City Leapers jump rope team will perform.
Volunteers are needed for many things, such as playing games with kids, doing arts and crafts, running the dunk tank, helping to clean up, and helping to set up and break down. Also, chairs, tables and tents are needed.
