Simple Dreams Stratford hosted a successful Picnic in the Park on Sunday, Aug. 10.
Held in Upper Queen's Park, the day included a host of games and live entertainment for family and friends.
Speaking with the Gazette prior to the first-time event, organizer Richard Kneider said the goal was to have people from all walks of life come together to share in a meal and fellowship.
"I think it will be a really nice day," he said, "and I'm hoping it could be the first of many that we look at doing."
Simple Dreams also organizes annual pool/pizza parties, a Thanksgiving turkey giveaway, and the To Stratford With Love Christmas dinner.
