Rain or shine

County picnic moves indoors

Ideally, the Warren County picnic would be held outside.

Due to a light, but consistent, rain Tuesday morning, the annual event for county employees was held indoors this year.

The food was served out of the commissioners conference room.

People gathered wherever.

And the cornhole games were played right in the hallways.

“Every summer we do a county picnic,” Commissioner Jeff Eggleston said. “Everybody brings food… treats.”

“We shut the courthouse down for an hour-and-a-half,” Eggleston said. “It’s a team-building exercise.”

There were 32 names on the cornhole tournament bracket.

The games were restricted by the presence of light fixtures hanging down from the ceilings and passers-by who had to share limited hall space.

But, it was all in fun.

“Why put high ceilings in a building if you’re not going to play indoor cornhole,” Eggleston joked.
