Calcutta Square veterans picnic attracts over 1K visitors

This year’s “Veterans Appreciation Picnic” on Aug. 12 at Calcutta Square was deemed a huge success. A total of 1,012 attended, including 464 veterans. Throughout the day, veterans and their guests were treated to hot dogs, hamburgers, salad, baked beans, homemade cupcakes, ice cream and refreshments while they talked to old and new friends. The “popcorn man” is on hand each year to serve fresh hot popcorn. Plans are already being discussed for the 2018 picnic, to be sponsored again by the Veterans Appreciation Committee.
