The Annual BBBS Summer Picnic


On a sunny Saturday in July, hundreds of BBBS matches, families and staff got together at Fort Snelling State Park for the annual BBBS Summer Picnic, sponsored by Dairy Queen. The day included a wide variety of fun activities, from fishing to dancing to the chance to dunk a Match Coordinator in the dunk tank!

Thanks to everyone who joined us for the perfect way to celebrate a beautiful Minnesota summer. Here are a few pictures from the day:  DSC_3897
