Governor Sean Parnell’s office has announced the dates for this year’s Governor’s Family Picnics, which are set to kick off this week.
For more than a decade now, the setting governor has hosted the community picnics in the Anchorage, Mat-Su Valley, Fairbanks, and Juneau areas. The picnics are made possible by generous donations from Alaska businesses and hundreds of volunteers.
Beginning last year, other Alaska communities were given the opportunity to host a picnic with Governor Parnell.
This year, the Southern Kenai Peninsula City of Homer was selected as this year’s traveling location.
Parnell will participate in the picnic in Homer next Thursday, July 25 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. at Karen Hornaday Park.
