Center Family Picnic

Imagine your financial advisor, laying it all on the line in a grueling, high stakes battle … of a water balloon toss. Oh, we stop at nothing to make sure our team is ready, especially when it comes to picnics! The Center social committee organized a wonderful weekend gathering August 17th at Island Lake State Park in Brighton. The event was filled with good food, good company, and lots of your typical summer picnic games. And to put the icing to the cake, we couldn’t have had a more beautiful day for it.

About 50 people – Center team members and their families and friends – came out. Everyone contributed a dish or two to go along with the burgers and dogs on the grill, and we ended up with enough food to feed closer to 100 people!

Megaphone in hand, our Dan Boyce officiated the day’s games, including that water balloon toss that quickly turned into a water balloon fight. Next up was the 3-legged race, and last but not least was an egg & spoon relay race. There were also side competitions in corn hole, ladder golf, bocce, and a very intense game of sand volleyball. Some unexpected competitive sides came out, and spectators enjoyed watching the players diving all over the court.

Great memories were made with our Center family and we have the pictures to prove it! Overall, the first annual Center Family Picnic was a terrific success, and a tradition that will undoubtedly be repeated.
