All County Picnic in Place
Jefferson County PUD is proud to take part in the All County Picnic in Place. The All County Picnic motivates East Jefferson County residents to develop resiliency through fostering community and raising awareness about local emergency resources. The Picnic is a chance to connect with local emergency management, first responders, community leaders and elected officials, eat (free!) corn on the cob with your neighbors and learn about the resources that exist to serve you and your community.
We are encouraging households to picnic on their front porches or in their front yards and to walk about their neighborhoods connecting with neighbors at a safe distance. Wearing a mask is recommended, as is remaining six feet apart from individuals who are not members of your household.
We ask that all participants adopt and adhere to these recommendations and best practices as part of their own personal commitment to social responsibility and public safety. Our community will be living with COVID-19 for the foreseeable future, and we need to remain mindful while nurturing our friendships and community networks.
