2018 will be known for many years to come as the spring, summer, and fall of rain. Our annual picnic was no different. While the skies may have opened up, it certainly did little to dampen the spirit of the picnic. And while the rain may have kept some picnickers from making it out to the Woods, those who did make it enjoyed a great meal, great music, and awesome fellowship.
Make sure to mark your calendars for August 17, 2019 for this year's picnic.
Since approximately 1846, the 3rd Saturday of August has been set aside for the Annual Utica Picnic. The picnic has undergone many changes over the years, but it continues to be an important annual event in northern Frederick County sponsored by St. Paul's Church of Utica through our Utica Sunday School.
Today, it is a place for people to gather, to be entertained and to enjoy good food (the best Country Ham around) and company in the pleasant surroundings of our Picnic Woods. It is also an important fund-raiser for our church. A full picnic meal for an adult will cost $20.00. There will be ice cream, baked goods, and light fare to purchase.
Youth, young adults and adults of all ages volunteer in many ways to make the Picnic happen and be successful.
