The public is invited to a free community cook-out in the courtyard of the Pajama Factory on Monday, July 22, 2019 at 5 p.m.

"The menu consists of traditional picnic fare," says Ben Conrad, organizer of the event which is sponsored by First United Methodist Church, "including hot dogs, hamburgers, sides, and bean burgers for those who do not wish to have meat."
