The Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle Alumni Association held its annual Great American Picnic last Sunday on the lawn of the Literary Arts Center at Alumni Hall.
The Great American Picnic is exactly what it sounds like: a glimpse of true-blue Americana.
The CLSC Alumni Association hosted its annual Great American Picnic on Sunday on the front lawn of the Literary Arts Center at Alumni Hall.
Chautauquans looking for entertainment will find no shortage of it at the Great American Picnic this Sunday.
Chautauquans will eat 600 hot dogs in less than three hours this Sunday at the annual Great American Picnic. The event will take place from noon to 3 p.m. on the lawn in front of Alumni Hall.
The Chautauqua Literary and Science Circle Alumni Association Great American Picnic is the epitome of an American summer at the “most American place in America,” with white-checkered tablecloths, hot dogs, music, games and face paint.
The picnic is from 12:15–3 p.m. Sunday on the Alumni Hall front lawn, and it is the sole fundraiser for the Alumni Association, which sponsors many CLSC events.
Matthew Rogers, chair of the picnic, said the money raised goes toward the maintenance of Alumni Hall, the upkeep of the classes’ historical banners and a scholarship fund for one student.
