The picnic is now on Saturday, Sept. 19, with a rain date of Sept. 20 (though the forecast looks fine and dandy for the 19th).
With a theme of "Neighbors No Longer Strangers," the Navy Yard Neighborhood Association is having a combination community picnic and fundraising flea market
from noon to 5 pm at the Joy Evans Park, 555 L St., SE, just behind Van Ness Elementary.
Co-sponsored with the Arthur Capper/Carrollsburg Village Timebanks and Capitol Quarter Community Associations I and II, paper plates, utensils, beverages and much of the food will be provided, and while grilling won't be allowed (or dogs), attendees are welcome to bring along "food offerings" to share.
Flea market donations such as books, toys, games, and small appliances in good condition (but no clothes) will be accepted.
(The first bad weather in weeks has prompted the organizers to postpone the picnic from its original Sept. 12 date.)
