The Beehive Credit Union picnic is an event that brings the community together to kick off the summer while helping those in need.

Members of the credit union received invitations prior to the event, informing its members that all the proceeds made would be donated to the Primary Children’s Hospital.

This event went from 4-7 p.m. on Thursday, June 22 at Porter Park. Beehive members attending the picnic enjoyed free dinner, which included a hot dog or pulled pork sandwich, chips, salad, lemonade and ice cream.

For a $5 wristband, families could participate in diverse experiences like obstacle courses, bounce houses, a climbing wall, a water slide and more.
