The first official event at the newly reclaimed Volunteer Park of Alexandria occurs on the 2nd of July at 3 PM with a community wide picnic. All residents of the greater Alexandria Community are invited to bring a picnic basket and use one of the 18 newly installed tables or bring a blanket if you desire and have your late afternoon meal on the ground. Leave your car in the Gin Alley parking lot and take the short stroll down to the park and enjoy yourselves. Rumor has it that some horseshoe pits will be in place. Bring a set of horseshoes and challenge a neighbor and see who wins. There is plenty of room to place catch if that is your fancy. Bring gloves and balls and spend some time tossing the old horsehide sphere around. Walk around and see about 75 new plants that Rick Harris has put in. There is supposed to be some fish in the stream along the north side of the park. If you are properly licensed and wish to test your luck, bring some equipment and do a little angling. Whatever your fancy, come to the Volunteer Park of Alexandria and enjoy a old fashioned Independence Day Celebration.
