Food & fun set for special needs residents at May 10 picnic

April 30, 2014

Adaptive RecJohns Creek's special needs residents and their families can socialize, eat, and play – and share their vision for Johns Creek's Adaptive Recreation program – at the first Summer Kick-Off Picnic on May 10 at the Park Place lawn at Newtown Park.

The festivities include free hotdogs and hamburgers (while they last), Kona Ice, music, and a chance to learn to play bocce ball. Chopper, the Gwinnett Braves mascot, and Homer, The Home Depot mascot, will be on hand along with the Johns Creek police and firefighters. The Home Depot also will have tables with building workshop kits set up.

The picnic is part of the Johns Creek Recreation and Parks Division's Adaptive Recreation program for Johns Creek residents with special needs. City parks staff will be available to hear from the community about what they would like in future recreation programs.

This free event is open to people of all ages, but attendees must pre-register. The fun starts at 11 a.m. and closes at 1 p.m.

The picnic is sponsored by the City of Johns Creek, the Johns Creek Civitan Club, and the Johns Creek, Northview, and Chattahoochee high school Junior Civitan clubs. Grilling will be provided by Civitan members and Home Depot employees.
