The families encourage you to check out more about Megan and Andy, and the lives they continue to touch, at www.andyandmegan .shutterfly.com. Much more than a simple fundraising event … Megan and Andy’s memorial picnic benefit is a community gathering of love, friendship and fellowship. Approximately 300-400 people have attended the event each of the last two years. It is the hope of the families that with your participation, the memorial picnic may be a highly-anticipated event each and every year! Bring a chair if you have one … bring a side dish if you are so inclined … or just bring yourself, your family, your friends … and join them.
