Annual Great American Picnic promises fanfare

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.
