Area residents braved the heat Monday to enjoy the annual Pinehurst Labor Day Picnic.

The Orange Blossoms dance group performed for the audience and music was provided by Doug Childress and Gone to Texas. A few couples could be seen twirling on the dance floor.

Residents feasted on gumbo, links, potato salad, cake and watermelon. It was service with a smile as members of the Little Cypress Lions Club and other volunteers delivered food to the picnickers.

Lorene and Ray Camp were recognized as the longest married couple with 66 years under their belt.

The big winners of the door prizes were Stump Weatherford and Marie Browning for the two rocking chairs which were provided by Welch’s Furniture and Robert’s Meat Market, while Juanita Schlicher won the big screen TV donated by Orange Savings Bank.
