The East Central Minnesota Chapter 684 of the Vietnam Veterans of America will be hosting a family picnic on Saturday, August 6, at Bluebird Park in Isanti. All Veterans and their families are invited to attend. A barbeque pork lunch will be provided beginning at 3 p.m. If possible, bring a dish to pass and a lawn chair for your comfort. Table service and beverages will be provided. There is no charge for the picnic.
After lunch, you will have an opportunity to spend some time with Berry Lee and his friends. They will be displaying and demonstrating their remote control model aircraft, including vintage World War II models. Later in the afternoon, weather permitting, the POW-MIA hot air balloon team will be offering tethered balloon rides. Get a whole new view of Isanti and the surrounding area.
The local Chapter 684 meets at 7 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month at the Isanti Community Center. For more information about the organization contact Bob Ciszewski at 651-485-2786.
