The Tri-State Civitan Club recently held a picnic for the club’s special friends and their families.

More than 150 people were in attendance at The Improved Order of Red Men Tribe 84 pavilion in Williamsport.

Hamburgers and hot dogs were on the menu, followed by the arrival of an ice cream truck. Temporary tattoos and face painting, along with balloon headdresses, were a big hit.

This was the fourth year for the picnic, attendance at which grows each year.

• At the club's July meeting, member Carolyn Roney showed slides of her recent trip to Greece, where she was a volunteer at the International Special Olympics bocce competitions. There were 16 indoor courts.

Since Roney coaches local Special Olympics bocce, she said she enjoyed the trip.

The U.S. soccer team from St. Mary’s County, Md., captured a gold medal, and U.S. teams earned gold in volleyball and softball.

Roney said she also had a chance to see a lot of the country, sample the food and found the people to be very friendly.
