There were free books for kids that told the Stone Soup tale and they did a story-time for everyone too, here is a picture of the one we got for Clarkson:
A big long table was present and it was an awesome way for the community to come together, share some food, and unite together. It was the first-ever time Cortland had held their version of this and it was extremely well-attended and enjoyable. I could picture such a thing working great for a neighborhood so people can get to know each other. We had a fantastic time at the Community Outreach Picnic Stone Soup Event and hope if/when it happens again we'll be in Cortland for it--plus I'll encourage our home neighborhood/city to do something similar as well to foster togetherness.
