Vaughn 6 Goodman
Picnic Pointers Given
By Recreation Leader
No activity is more conductive to
good fellowship and healthful rec
reation than a picnic, and almost
any Oregon community can profit
from at least one community picnic
during the summer, says Miss Ger
trude Skow, home demonstration
agent at large, and author of a
monthly recreation bulletin issued
by the home economics division of
the Oregon Extension service. The
most recent of these publications,
which is free on request, contains
suggested programs, planning de
tails, games and other entertain
ment features helpful to those in
charge of a community picnic or
for a smaller group.
For an all-day community outing,
Misg Skow suggests the following
order of events: Entertainment for
the early arrivals, games before
dinner, dinner, community singing,
address, mixed games, and contests.
It is usually best, she says, for the
one in charge to appoint commit
tees to care for entertainment, re
freshments, grounds, attendance,
clean-up, and probably another to
be responsible for the entire pro
gram of the day.
A band or an orchestra is always
enjoyed, but lengthy speaking or
literary programs are to be avoid
ed. It is well to plan for the enter
tainment and supervision of young
er children, including, if possible, a
sand box with cups and dishes, and
someone to teach them singing and
