WPA ready to welcome all to Hiram, Ohio on Aug. 25.
HIRAM, OH — It’s time once again for the Association’s biggest fraternal event of the year: the WPA Picnic. We hope you will join us on Saturday, Aug. 25, from noon to 6:00 p.m. at the Hungarian Cultural Center of Northeastern Ohio (HCCNEO) in Hiram.
Volunteers from both WPA and the HCCNEO have worked long and hard to make sure our members and friends have an enjoyable day.
As always, the picnic will feature:
• delicious, homemade Hungarian food and free hot and cold beverages;
• a wide variety of scrumptious Hungarian pastries for sale;
• music by George Batyi and his ensemble;
• a Chinese auction;
• vendors selling Hungarian clothing, arts and crafts;
• a children’s area with a playground and other fun activities; and
• non-stop fraternal fellowship!
Tickets are available in advance and at the gate. Admission is $15 for adults ($12 per adult for groups of 12 or more); and $5 for students with ID. Children under 12 are free. For tickets and more information, call the WPA Home Office toll-free at 1-800-848-7366, ext. 149.
Donations of pastries and prizes still being accepted for picnic
We invite all our members, branches and friends to help us prepare for the WPA Picnic by donating baked goods for our pastry booth and prizes for the Chinese auction.
As guests at previous picnics know, the pastry booth is so popular that the pastries sell out before the picnic closes, leaving some guests disappointed.
So, the more pastries we have to sell, the fewer guests we’ll disappoint. We ask that you either donate a favorite pastry or baked good, or if you are unable to bake yourself, make a monetary donation that will allow us to cover the cost of additional treats.
If you will be either bringing a pastry donation or making a monetary donation, please contact Dora McKinsey at 1-800-848-7366, ext. 122, or at firstname.lastname@example.org, no
later than Aug. 10. We also invite all our members, branches and friends to donate prizes for the Chinese auction.
If you would like to donate a prize, please contact Ronda Konesky at the Home Office at 1-800-848-7366, ext. 112, or at email@example.com. Let Ronda know what type of prize you’ll be donating and if you will be delivering your prize to the Home Office prior to the picnic or bringing it with you to Hiram.
All proceeds from both the picnic’s Chinese auction and pastry booth–along with proceeds from all the day’s activities–will benefit the William Penn Fraternal Association Scholarship Foundation, Inc.
We thank you in advance for your generosity and support.
