My outreach assignment last weekend from the Liverpool Public Library took me and my camera bag to the Bayberry neighborhood.
An old friend, Mike Banks, had alerted my colleagues Laurel Griffith and Dave Witkowski when he spotted them out at a previous event that he was cooking up a big celebration from his spot at the top of the Bayberry Community Association.
The community was turning 60. A big picnic was being held in a greenspace between several of their leafy, winding blocks a few miles from the library.
Dave, Cindy Hibbert and Jake Hare would attend with our new pop-up tent and life-sized Angry Birds game to educate and entertain the neighbors. I’d catch images, still and video, for our social media.
It was hot and steamy.
People enjoyed themselves, at our tent and at everything Mike had set up, from the bubble slide to the band to the fire truck brought there by the fire fighters from Moyers Corners.

Does your community have great parks? What’s your favorite spot for a picnic? How old is your neighborhood, and does your community celebrate together?
