Hot Times, Cool Picnic

We had our 5th annual Hancock Community Labor Day Picnic here on Elm Street on the appropriate day.  The temperatures were right up there to make it one of the hottest days we have had this summer (I chose not to look and find out just how hot it was).  It has been very dry here and we have spent a lot of time wishing the rain would pour down, but instead we got the sun pouring down on us.

Despite the hydrangeas looking a bit crispy, it all worked out very well with lots of good potluck dishes and pork and chicken barbeque as well as a whole lot of very nice people sharing in the work and visiting with old friends and new.  And that is what it is all about:  The community coming together.
