Lunch in the park returns to Scottdale
Residents of Scottdale and surrounding areas can get ready for various lunch choices at the gazebo Tuesday.
That's because the annual the annual lunch in the park is scheduled to take place from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Lunch in the park is a Scottdale Chamber of Commerce sponsored event.
Nate Savanick, event coordinator, said the event is the first of three lunches scheduled this summer at the gazebo downtown, with others planned the second Tuesday of July and August.
The usual groups that prepare food for the businesses and people of Scottdale are expected to do so again this year. These include Friends of the Library, Scottdale Community Pool, Calvin United Presbyterian Church and St. John's Lutheran Church.
Savanick said there also will be prizes raffled off, which have been donated by local vendors. Entertainment will be provided by the Rev. Chris Varney and his saxophone.
“I hope we can bring people downtown to enjoy the park area,” Savanick said. “It's been very popular and it's a great opportunity for churches to raise some money for their causes.”
