What better way to welcome spring and countdown to summer than with an afternoon picnic and classic lawn games?
Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) celebrated “Casual Sunday” after morning worship this past Sunday. Members and guests were encouraged to dress for a picnic and bring family and friends for a day of outdoor activity.
Fried chicken (of course— it was Sunday) and all the trimmings that make a picnic special like baked beans, old-fashioned pea salad, deviled eggs and cole slaw were among the spread of food that was followed by banana pudding, chocolate cake and other tempting desserts.
Central, (the oldest church in Dallas), boasts some great cooks, but some things have changed since the church was founded in 1863. Frying chicken at home may well be one of them, so they looked to Bubba’s in SnyderPlaza for the chicken..
How long has it been since you’ve played a game of croquet or badminton? At the picnic, some folks played those timeless, but often forgotten, games, while others amused themselves with ladder ball or tried their skill at raising and flying a kite.
Many enjoyed spending the afternoon just sitting in the shade of the giant bois d’ arc tree that sprawls the front lawn, sipping iced tea and visiting with each other.
Sunshine and the church’s beautiful lawn made the perfect place for a picnic.
Central is located at 4711 Westside Dr. just off Mockingbird Lane. All are welcome!
