The picnic is a time to get to know everyone in the chapter and welcome new members.

This event is important to the chapter because they want all members to be involved and socialize with new people.

Each member brought food that starts with the same letter as their middle name and they played games such as nine square, hide-and-seek tag, and the snake game.
