    Picnic planned for

    city neighborhood

    Residents of Franklin, Brown, Cherry, Howe and Granger streets in Rutland are invited to a neighborhood picnic from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Aug. 17 on Cherry Street.

    Residents are asked to bring pre-cooked family meals, nonalcoholic drinks and lawn chairs or a quilt.

    Children are welcome, but not pets or music players, and shirts and shoes are required.

    The event is billed as a casual neighborhood gathering to renew old friendships, meet new neighbors and catch up with news from around the community.

    Music is planned from 3 to 4 p.m., and organizers suggest the likelihood of “an impromptu sing-along.” Face painting will also be offered and city officials are expected to attend.

    The event is organized with help from Rutland United Neighborhoods.
