2019 Picnic Details

Please join us for a grand gathering of friends and family at the 2019 Clarks in the Park picnic.

Please join us for our biennial gathering of family and friends!

Saturday, June 22nd
Noon to 5 pm
Soccer Planet, Urbana, IL

The picnic is a celebration of our family ties, all extended family and friends included. That is, everyone is welcome! Invitations go out to cousins on the Clark and Wheelan sides of the families, as well as other extended family members, friends and others with an interest in visiting with the clan. We always have a wonderful time sharing stories and renewing the ties between us.

Here are some details about the picnic:

Food: Potluck. There are no arrangements for any catering, so please bring a dish (or two) to share. Cups, plates, napkins and plastic picnic ware will be provided.

Optional: Lawn chairs, games, photos and drinks (coffee, iced tea and lemonade will be provided). Please note that the rental agreement does not permit us to have alcohol on site.

Games: We'll plan to play "Clark Bingo" and possibly a few other games. There is plenty of room for kids of all ages to stretch their legs and play games.

Weather: No worries! This is an indoor venue with air-conditioning and modern restrooms.

If you have other questions, email Molly at maryjdaniel@outlook.com or call her cell phone at 217-549-2303.

Please note: Soccer Planet has another event which will be ending at 11:30 am.
