News to Know

The Lake Wedowee Property Owners Association annual picnic
offers fun for everyone. Food, games and fireworks!

This summer, the Lake Wedowee Property Owners Association is hosting their 14th annual picnic and fireworks display on June 9th at 3 p.m. This event provides the membership an opportunity to come together to have fun and fellowship, meet old friends and make new ones. It is also an occasion for the membership to get to know their board members.

Through the generosity of the Rice family, the picnic will take place at the Luther & Laska Rice pavilion where it has been since the inaugural event in 1998. Each year the event continues to grow with last year’s attendance reaching 270 people despite the threat of stormy weather. This year’s attendees will be treated to a meal of a fried chicken/ham plate. Entertainment will be provided by the ‘Tree Frogs’ and the night will be topped off with a spectacular fireworks display by the Billy Herren family. Other activities will include: face painting and a clown ball toss for the children, History and global story telling by Don East and Mark Parrish, and a demonstration by the Cheaha radio controlled airplane club.

Attendees are also invited to enter the baking contest in one of three categories; pound cake, layer cake and pies. Winners will be chosen in each category and the entries served for desert.

All of this is free for Lake Wedowee Property Owners Association members providing they make advance reservations. Reservation forms were sent to each member the middle of May and must be received back by June1st.
