Mercer Island Together cancels all-Island picnic
Mercer Island Together, a nonprofit community support group, has canceled its free End of Summer Picnic, which was scheduled from noon to 4 p.m. Aug. 28 at Mercerdale Park.
“Regrettably, given the heightened levels of COVID cases, the governor’s admonition and the precedent of Mercer Island city government cancellation of Mostly Music in the Park, out of an abundance of caution, we have reluctantly canceled the all-Island picnic,” the group said in a press release. “We will endeavor to reschedule at the earliest possible date.”
