By second grade, I learned that the school picnic was the best indication summer was just around the corner – being from Chicago, weather wasn’t much of a tell-tale sign. I also didn’t have the best perception of time at the age of seven or eight, but that’s a different story. The teachers would get us in a zig-zaggy sort of line, and we’d wait for the most perfect announcement to crackle over the speaker, “Time to go outside”.
I was unable to contain my excitement rushing out of that brick building. Summer was greeting me in the form of sunshine, picnic blankets, and popsicles. Nothing could be better in my childhood mind.
Time hasn’t changed that perception. I still have a strong association between picnics and summertime which is why I’m so excited that Think Big and the KC startup community are hosting a rain or shine Potluck Picnic.
Come celebrate the summer with us on Thursday, July 20th from 12pm – 2pm at the second floor of the Think Big building.
