On Saturday, October 8th, 2011 the Whittington Valley Neighborhood Association held its 2011 Fall Potluck Picnic in Whittington City Park. Aided by unseasonably warm weather and a constant cooling breeze, the well-attended event offered Association members, friends and neighbors the opportunity to meet, share good food and enjoy excellent company. The Association provided hot dogs, hamburgers and drinks. Many attendees brought a side dish or dessert to share with their neighbors. As you can see below, the dessert table was well stocked.

Special thanks goes to WVNA Vice President John Lewis for working the barbecue grill and for our friends over in the Park Avenue Community Association who came over and joined with us.

Picnic Funnies
Association Vice-President
John Lewis entertained
picnic-goers with a
live flame show--and
singed his hair!
Fortunately he was the
only person injured--and
most importantly the
hamburgers and hot dogs were
cooked perfectly!
Association member
Pat Heibner reports:
"Well ladies, I've got good news
and I've got bad news.
The bad news is that the man
working the grill set his
hair ablaze.  The good news
he's no longer on fire, so the
hamburgers should be done
in just a couple of minutes!"

the grillmaster setting his
hair on fire.  "Do you think
