Funny in a Good Way to organize Ultimate Family Church Picnic


Posted on Thursday, June 7, 2018

PEMBROKE - Local non-profit organization, Funny in a Good Way is set to partner with a number of local churches to create the Ottawa Valley’s Ultimate Family Church Picnic.

With the blessing of the Pembroke Area Clergy Association, Funny in a Good Way is taking on the task of completing its second event of the year to bring together valley residents to celebrate in a wholesome family friendly environment and enjoy some exciting church picnic activities.

The event, dubbed the Ultimate Family Church Picnic, is scheduled for the afternoon of July 8 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. and will be held at Hugli’s Blueberry Ranch, 2139 Greenwood Rd., Pembroke.  Everyone is welcome so be sure and bring family and friends.

Managing Director Michael Gulliver, says, “the event will include games organized by local Churches, a puppet show by Rock the Arts, farm animals, face painting, the Hugli’s play park and music by contemporary praise band Gate47.”

Like any great picnic, there will be lots of food available.  Participants who want to do the traditional picnic lunch are encouraged to bring their own basket of goodies and for those who want to go worry free there will be BBQ food available for purchase from local caterer, Dreams Catering.  Of course, all the goodies from fudge to ice cream and a host of other baked goods are available from the Hugli’s Ice Cream Bar and Bake Shop.

The event is designed to bring the community together and offer up a great afternoon of family fun at a very affordable price.  Cost to access all the event activities is $5.00 per person or $15.00 for a family of 4.  Children 2 and under are admitted free.

Funny in a Good Way traditionally seeks out an organization that can benefit from some fundraising support and for this event the Board of Directors has chosen to have any extra funds directed towards – First Step Options.  As a family oriented event it seems fitting that the funds raised go towards supporting the efforts of the Pregnancy Resource Centre.
