In appreciation and honor of veterans in Northeast Georgia, the city of Helen is hosting a picnic for U.S. military veterans and their family next week.
“A Day in the Park” will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 22, at Helen’s Riverside Park along the Chattahoochee River on Edelweiss Strasse. Guests will bite into hamburgers, hot dogs and all the fixin’s.
The feast is compliments of the city and prepared by council members and other volunteers. Member volunteers of Helen Arts & Heritage Center will provide desserts.
Attendees are invited to bring lawn chairs for additional seating and comfort if they wish.
Veterans planning to attend are asked to contact Helen Arts & Heritage by calling 706-878-3933 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with a headcount. The number will help in preparing food for the event.
