Today: OVEC’s Annual Picnic
It’s today, Saturday October 7. Come on out for our annual member and supporter picnic—30th anniversary edition! There’s no need to bring a dish, as OVEC is providing lunch. 

Please join us at Barboursville Park, Shelter No. 4. We have the shelter all day and the picnic is at noon. There’s a playground, swings, and a climbing and bouncing bridge. There’s also tennis, volleyball, basketball, and lake fishing.

Barboursville Park, Co. Rd 31/6, Barboursville, WV, 25504

Temperatures will be in the low 80s when the picnic starts, with no rain forecast. 

Here’s the day’s lineup:

2:30 p.m. Bike Ride

Live music, too! Feel free to bring an instrument if you are a musician. Please bring your own equipment for outdoor activities.
