Every year the FAN Summer Picnic brings the community together. This year will feature a dedication of the new mural at the Dr. Edwin Coleman, Jr., Community Center (home of the Emerald Valley Boys and Girls Club). Enjoy live music, bring your own picnic, root beer floats, community outreach booths, and much more
We're looking for a few able-bodied volunteers to help with setup before and teardown after the picnic. Volunteers get free refreshments. Items to setup and teardown include shade structures, tables, chairs, hanging banners, and food for musicians and volunteers. Setup starts at 11:30 AM, and teardown starts at 4:00 PM. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to join the crew!
Join friends and neighbors to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Edwin Coleman, Jr., a long-time FAN resident, educator, musician and community leader!
Music will be provided by Paul Biondi, Edwin Coleman III, and Callan Coleman. Speakers include Mayor Lucy Vinis, City Councilor Greg Evans, and Carla Gary. Enjoy live music, root beer floats, food trucks, community outreach booths, and much more. Bring a folding chair or blanket to sit on, and enjoy the party!
The mural, created by Jessilyn Brinkerhoff and Esteban Camacho Steffensen, was made possible by the FAN Equity Action Team, a City of Eugene Neighborhood Matching Grant, and many community organizations, businesses, and individuals
