For the first time ever, a radio station will be doing a live remote from the picnic. WBIO (94.7 FM) will set up a two-hour remote with disc jockey Steve Horn.

The silent auction will offer a wide variety of nice items. The popular yard sale and holiday decor booths will be back. Other booths will feature one-of-a-kind handmade crafts made by the Ursuline Sisters and friends, a cake wheel, ice cream, bingo, pull tabs, fruit, plants and more. Children can enjoy an inflatable obstacle course, face painting, adopting a (stuffed) pet and games such as Froggie.
