The 2015 Back to School Picnic was a success. It was held on Friday, October 2nd at the Robinson Community Learning Center (RCLC). We had a great turnout of students, neighbors and families totaling over 200 people! Chef Andrew Kostielney and his sous-chef Roland Reese grilled hot dogs and hamburgers for all. Fresh corn on the cob was steamed by Donna the daughter of the late Sonny Ross who was missed by all at the picnic. Notre Dame cheers were led by the Leprechaun and cheer-leading squad. Members of the N.D. LaCrosse team played with the children. Children were also treated to Lu’s famous popcorn, face-painting, balloons and bubbles.Both the South Bend Fire Department and Notre Dame Fire Department arrived with trucks for the children to explore. St. Eve and the Vibe provided fantastic live music.
