In its 29th year, Schaumburg Township Disability Services hosted their annual picnic for people with disabilities and their families. This year's picnic "Luau on the Beach" was held on Saturday, July 19, with over 200 guests attending.
For the past two years, the picnic has been generously sponsored by the Illinois Telecommunications Access Corporation, Village Tavern and Grill, The Schaumburg-Hoffman Lions Club, Culver's, and the Schaumburg Township Foundation.
Highlights of the day included face painting by Chispita and Bombaco Flores, entertainment by DJ Eric Brandt, Brookfield Zoo's nature and science activities, sponsored by State Representatives Michelle Mussman and Fred Crespo, and magic tricks by magicians. In addition, a delicious lunch of chicken fingers, donated by JR Hutson of Village Tavern and Grill, and frozen custard desserts, donated by Barry Himmelfarb of Culver's, were served under the tent. The picnic concluded with guests playing bingo for a chance to win prizes donated by local businesses.
Special thanks go out to all the volunteers, the Schaumburg Township Highway Department, the Sheriff's Work Alternative Program, and the Schaumburg Park District for their support, without which, the picnic would not have been a success.
