Community picnic at park moved to Sunday, Sept. 12

By Staff | Sep 10, 2010

The Rugby Fire Department’s community picnic at Southside Park, originally scheduled for Thursday, September 9, will now be held this Sunday, September 12.

Cool and rainy weather forced fire officials to reschedule the event, which will begin at 5 p.m.

Hamburgers, chips and drinks will be served.

Fire officials are planning to use the picnic as an opportunity to discuss a proposal to use the south portion of the park to build a fire hall.

Pylons will be placed to outline where the hall would go on the land and an artist’s rendering will also be displayed.

The picnic is being held to get an idea of where the community stands on the department’s request to use some of the park property. The department hopes there is a good turnout and people will ask questions or address concerns.
