INDEPENDENCE, Kan.—The SKIL Resource Center in Independence will hold its free annual customer appreciation picnic September 25, 2020. The public is invited to attend.
The free picnic will be held from 5:30-7:00 p.m. in the alley behind the Independence SKIL office, 107 East Main St. In keeping with Coronavirus safety measures, the picnic will be a drive-up, walk-up, roll-up event with social distancing, said SKIL President/CEO Shari Coatney. There will be hot dogs, chips, dessert and drinks served.
“SKIL appreciates all of the support we receive from our customers and the community,” said Coatney. “The community is very supportive of SKIL and our work. We’ll be excited to see you, so please come by and pick up your free meal.”
SKIL holds the free picnics annually, to thank its customers and to further introduce the public to SKIL, a local non-profit center for independent living. The picnics are held in towns where SKIL has a branch office.
