A morning monsoon did nothing to dampen the spirits of picnic-goers at the second annual Lehigh Presbytery Picnic on July 15, 2018 at the Emmaus Community Park.
“Considering that at 10 a.m. it was like Armageddon, I’d say we had a great turnout,” said event organizer Sally Heimbach.
“We just thought about Noah,” joked Jane Koeble.
While heavy rains fell on much of the area in the morning, by the time the picnic started the sun was out and spirit were high as everyone dug into hotdogs and barbecue provided by the Presbytery, and a variety of dishes brought by attendees.
“It’s been a great afternoon,” said Moderator Carol Brown. “I’m glad I came.”
People from churches throughout the Presbytery attended, fresh from worship and having changed from their church clothes into picnic gear.
Janine Santoro, a member of the Allentown church, came with her husband Steve and their toddler son, Joey.
