Community Care Network Summer Picnic


The Community Care Network held its summer picnic at the Hathaway Farm in Rutland on July 25.  A fun time was held by all.  The 1881 barn was fantastic along with an array of farm animals that kids of all ages enjoyed.  There were wagon rides and a 12 acre corn maze and games, music from our own Charlie Woods and enthuastic singers.  The food was fantastic and after the wagon ride, marshmallows were roasted by the campfire.  The rain held off and the view up in the hills was fantastic.  Thanks to all who attended and to the picnic organizers.
