World’s Longest Table Charity Event – Evergreen Colorado
Designscape Colorado Employees had the pleasure of attending the 2016 World’s Longest Picnic Table Community picnic, charity event and an attempt to break the Guinness World Record.
The current Guinness record for the World’s Largest Picnic Table is 211.82m (694 ft. 11.35in) and was achieved by Arla Foods Deutschland GmbH (Germany), in Muenster, Germany on July 10, 2016. Around 800 people were holding a picnic at the table. Leadership Evergreen was hoping to break that records at this year’s event.
This event was held September 24, 2016 from 11am – 3pm at the Buchanan Park in Evergreen Colorado. This was a family friendly fun-filled day complete with food, drinks and entertainment. The community involved extravaganza was organized by the Leadership Evergreen Class of 2015 partnering with Leadership Evergreen.
Leadership Evergreen is a non-profit organization connecting people within the Evergreen area and surrounding mountain communities in a stupendous way. They help raise funds for the “Feed the Foothills Foundation” with proceeds going to the Evergreen, Conifer, Bailey, Pine and Idaho Springs areas. Their mission statement is “ to achieve its vision Leadership Evergreen offers participants opportunities to learn from and interact with community leaders and to enhance and strengthen their leadership abilities, all with the goal of solving issues that impact our mountain community.”
