Annual African Association of Madison/African Women’s Association Picnic
Family, Friends and Community
By Jonathan Gramling

      On July 17, the African Association of
Madison and the African Women’s Association
held their annual African Family & Community
Picnic at Elver Park. Several hundred adults
and children joined the festivities which
featured games for the children and a soccer
match for the adults. And as always, there was
plenty of African and American cuisine to go
around, from rice, greens and shish kabob to
brats and hot dogs. After the feast, there was
time for dancing and catching up with friends. It
certainly was hot fun in the summertime.
