June. It’s the time of year when temperatures get warm and the lightning bugs come out (along with the mosquitos…) And it was also time for the 20th annual Straub Picnic. This year didn’t disappoint! We had a great turnout again this year. We brought in the usual bouncy house and face painting for the kids. And of course burgers and beverages along with the raffle so that everyone goes home a winner!
For me, the best part is catching up with the spouses and family members of our team. It’s amazing how much the kids grow and change from year to year. We’ve watched them grow up before us and now they’re starting families.
For the kids, and many adults, the ice cream truck’s arrival may be the best part. This year the ice cream truck showed up in the middle of the raffle, but that didn’t stop the kids. We might have had a couple winners who even had to be called away from the truck to pick their prize!
The first timers always comment on how much fun our picnic is. We’re already looking forward to next year!
