The GDCA fall social activities began this past Sunday, September 29, with the annual fall picnic. Although we did not have the crisp, cool autumn weather we were hoping for, Garden District families came out to enjoy the delicious food, live entertainment, face painting, bounce house and good conversation and interaction with neighbors and friends.
The GDCA provided BBQ pulled pork from Memphis Mac and lemonade. The attending families contributed various side dishes and desserts. All dishes were finger-licking good, and there was plenty to go around. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the bounce house and face painting artists, and everyone enjoyed the guitar picking and performance from Brad Storin & David Pearce. And of course the neighborhood camaraderie was enjoyed best of all.
Our local councilwoman, Tyra Wicker, also stopped by for a visit. She had a chance to speak individually with some of our neighbors and discuss their concerns regarding street flooding and other issues.
GDCA would like to offer our sincerest thanks to The Purgesons for hosting the annual fall picnic at their lovely home. Their back yard, filled with magnificent live oak trees, was the absolute perfect setting for launching the first in our series of fall/winter activities. Also their daughter and her friends did the face painting!
We also want to thank our board members and others who helped to set up and break down all the tables and chairs and for cleaning up after the picnic. We have a hard working and committed group of board members and we certainly appreciate their effort.
The Garden District Fall Picnic and other organized activities are made possible by member dues and the generosity of you, our neighbors!! If you are not already a member, please consider becoming a GDCA member or Sponsor at https://gdcabr.org/product-category/join/
