This isn't just a Sunday picnic. This is history.
It's the "first time" a picnic ever has been held on the lawn of the on Stonecypher Road in Suwanee, according to Rena Everett McDaniel. The occasion is the rollout of the City Of Suwanee's 20/20 Vision strategy effort.
It's also the first time the city has held a community-wide event at the property, which includes the renowned Everett's Music Barn.
Activity is scheduled to begin about 12:30 p.m., with barbecue and trimmings. Also, literature on the findings of the multi-month strategy effort will be available inside the main house.

Bluegrass music is scheduled to begin about 3:00 p.m. Also, patrons will receive "goodie bags" with various merchandise, including raffle tickets, said Tommy Everett, soundman and curator of the barn's musical tradition, which dates to the 1970s.
Family members recall that dinners used to be held on the front porch of the main house, but those ceased at least 20 years ago.
