MultiFaith picnic Sunday


The annual picnic of the MultiFaith Council of Northwest Ohio will be held, rain or shine, Sunday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Sylvania United Church of Christ, 7240 Erie St., Sylvania. It is free and open to all, but potluck dishes are requested.

The picnic has a theme, “Compassionate Living Through Knowledge of Other Faiths,” and will feature games for all ages based on creative fun and cooperation.

A baking contest open to everyone will be judged by multifaith clergy; participants can bring their baked goods.

This year for the potluck, main dishes or casseroles are requested from attendees with last names starting with the letters A through I, salads and side dishes from J through R, and desserts from S through Z. The potluck food will be supplemented by kosher hot dogs, black bean burgers, beverages, and snack food provided by the MultiFaith Council.
