Family Picnic 2016 – For a Cause
By NIKITA P. PANJWANI JULY 24 2016
What better way to spend a good summer day than to ‘Care and Share’ while merry making and networking with family and friends on a Sunday, at the banks of Narragansett Bay, bordering Colt State Park, Bristol, Rhode Island? This is precisely what the Friends of the Indian Community of Greater Rhode Island organized on July 17 2016. The objective was to raise funds and support for the ‘Care and Share’ initiative of the India Association of Rhode Island, supporting charities through Akshaya Patra, Amos House RI, Federal Hill House Association RI, Rhode Island Community Food Bank and Sankara Eye Foundation.
The picnic, aimed to garner the spirit of giving and spreading joy, was a tremendous success with over 250 people in attendance, all enjoying the weather, the variety of delectable food and drinks and the company of family and friends. It was a great joy to see the children having a good time at the park playing with their friends and family as well as participating in the community enrichment activities. So great was the level of energy at the venue, that Mr. Robert Lancia, RI House Representative from Cranston, along with his wife Mrs. Maryann Lancia, paid a visit, appreciating the enthusiasm as well as the dedication displayed by the children and adults alike in bringing about the event to fruition.
Through the unwavering support of dedicated volunteers, the community endeavors to provide a lending hand to various charities and causes through events, programs and activities that are meaningful as well as entertaining.
