Annual Back-to-School Picnic Enjoyed by All

On Thursday, August 6th, 2015 Big Brothers Big Sisters held the Annual Back-To-School Picnic at Dan Daniel Park of Danville, VA. Bigs, littles, volunteers, board members, and sponsors were in attendance. Backpacks and afterschool snacks were provided for the youth. There was food, fun, and snow cones. This year we were privileged to have a few players of the Danville Braves Baseball team attend the picnic. Following the picnic was a Danville Braves game where our Big of the Year, Sherriff Mike Mondul, threw the first pitch. We would like to thank our board members Kate Berger, Felecia King, Mike Mondul, Sandy Hood, and Brian Foster for being in attendance. Also we would like to thank Tyler Bishop for facilitating the baseball game portion of this event. A special thanks to Steve Padgett, Chris Graham, and Jennifer Strader of Steve Padgett’s Danville Honda for providing and distributing food goods. Most importantly, we would like to thank our sponsors from The Community Foundation and The Hughes Memorial Foundation.
