Johns Creek Memorial Day Picnic
Break out the shorts and flip flops and head on over to Newtown Park on May 25th for the first annual Johns Creek Memorial Day Picnic, hosted by the Johns Creek Veterans Association. The festivities will be held on the patio at Park Place, from 11AM-2PM. Hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks will be served until the food runs out.
The JCVA is sponsoring a major project in the park which will get underway in July. They are installing a walkway, Memorial Walk, which will be laid out in honor of past and present veterans, as a place where park visitors can stroll and enjoy a few moments of appreciation for those who have served.
At the picnic visitors may purchase memorial bricks which will be used to line the walkway. Two sizes are available, 4x4 and 8x8. They are priced at $50-$100. The bricks may be engraved in memory of loved ones who have served in the armed forces. If you want to support the Memorial Walk project by purchasing a brick and you're unable to get to the Johns Creek Memorial Day Picnic on May 25th, you can order the memorial bricks online.
