Area picnics hosted by representatives from the Chautauqua Property Owners Association will be taking place all over the grounds from 5:30–7 p.m. today.

Barbara Brady, CPOA representative for Area 10, who is coordinating the picnics, said the area picnics are neighborhood events for renters, property owners and their guests.

“It’s just a great chance to get to meet your neighbors,” Brady said.

She said part of the goal this year is to get more renters to join in the fun.  The grounds are divided into 10 areas, which have been split into seven picnics this year.

The CPOA gives each area a budget of about $150 to supplement a main course, Brady said, but most areas ask that guests bring a dish to share.  Some areas assign each street with a different type of dish or assign by last names.

A map of CPOA areas is available at the CPOA website, cpoa.ws.
