Rotary Family Picnic

Saturday, August 21, 2021 By: John Butterfield


Picnics are a fun time, and this year’s Rotary Family Picnic on Sunday, Sept. 5 during the Labor Day weekend, will have lots of games, activities and yummy food for families to enjoy. 

The event, in its 16th year, will be held on the front lawn of Thomas Worthington High School, 300 W. Dublin-Granville Rd., from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Hosted by the Dublin-Worthington Rotary Club with presenting sponsor FCBank, the event features giant inflatable SuperGames, activities by area boy scouts, Toy Barn classic cars, music, and food. Admission is free. 

WDLR 1550 AM 92.9 FM will broadcast live from the event with DJ Bob Allen playing Ohio’s best classic hits from the 70s and 80s and more.

A number of food and specialty-treat trucks will be on hand. Rotarians will also sell hot dogs, beverages and Dairy Queen ice cream treats. Families may bring their own picnic food and refreshments along with lawn chairs and blankets.

The picnic will be one of the first major community outdoor events since Covid began. The event, normally held on the Fourth of July, was not held in 2020 and postponed until Labor Day Weekend this year due to Covid restrictions.

Covid precautions will be in place. Masks are recommended for children and unvaccinated persons. Social distancing markers will be placed at SuperGame activity entrances, and hand sanitizer stations will also be set up. 

SuperGames inflatables feature obstacle courses, slides and sports activities, including Bootcamp Obstacle, Vertical Rush, Fire Truck Slide, Dual Axe Throwing and Quarterback Blitz. 

Sponsorships at a variety of levels are still available. Proceeds from the event are used for service projects, helping youth and their families in the Worthington and Dublin communities.

Major sponsors for the event include: Appel & Hellstedt LLP, Attorneys at Law, Cam Taylor Realtors, Drs. Hull and Appel Family Dentistry, Lauterbach & Eilber Insurance, Northwest Oral & Facial Surgery, Ohio Fire Chief’s Association, Schoedinger Funeral Homes, Scioto Energy and Timothy E. Moats, DDS.  

The Dublin-Worthington Rotary Club is composed of community and business and professional leaders representing different careers, experiences and views but with a common purpose to make a positive difference in the community and globally. In 2021, the club is celebrating its 47th anniversary.

The club is part of Rotary International, the world’s oldest service club organization with more than 1.2 million members in over 30,000 clubs in more than 160 countries. Rotary’s motto, Service Above Self, exemplifies the humanitarian spirit of the organization’s members.

During the picnic Rotarians will provide information about the club’s local and global service projects and other humanitarian efforts and seek donations to support these efforts.
