It’s back!

The 18th Annual Pinehurst Labor Day Senior Citizen’s Day Picnic is returning after a one year absence. The event will start at 10 a.m. on Monday, September 3 at the Family Worship Center, 2300 41st Street in Pinehurst. It should end around 12:30 or 1 p.m.

Last year’s picnic was postponed due to Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey.

Robbie Hood, Pinehurst city administrator, said with last year and this year’s donations, they should have enough funds to make the 2018 picnic “a pretty good event.”

Southeast Texas Transit shuttle buses will start carrying attendees to the picnic and back from Sabine Federal Credit Union, 1939 Strickland Drive, at 9:30 a.m.

One of the organizers, Pam Honeycutt, said the local color guard will post the flags at the beginning of the picnic. Pinehurst’s very own fire chief, Shon Branham, will sing and the Orange Blossom Line Dancers will perform for the entertainment. The food will be provided by Robert’s Meat Market and Steakhouse and served by members of the LCM Lions Club.

There will be door prizes given away with a big screen television set, donated by First Financial Bank from last year, as the big prize.
