Thanks to the Sponsors & Volunteers who made the 2022 Leonard Picnic possible!

Thanks to all the sponsors who made this event possible. Please support these sponsors they make this event possible!!!

Thanks to all the volunteers, with your efforts and dedication to make this event a success, from working the gate, parking cars, working the chamber booth, setting up canopies, barricades, tables, chairs, rerouting traffic for the parade, organizing an event, lining up parade entries, research history and announce any information needed, hauling equipment to and from the park, putting up banners, signs, icing down water, judging the contests, shuttling bands to and from the green room, buying Gatorade for the band, supplying homemade deserts for the bands and showing some good ole Leonard hospitality at the green room.

I’m sure I have forgotten someone or something, but it takes a lot of time and effort to pull off an event like this and it doesn’t go unnoticed.

Sincere thanks to all of these fine citizens:
