Big Brothers Big Sisters hold annual picnic

Sunday was a gorgeous day to be outside and some members of Big Brothers and Big Sisters took advantage of that.

Sunday was the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Elkhart County's annual summer picnic at Ideal Beach.

The day celebrates the "Bigs”, as they're known, for their volunteerism.

Families gather in the park as one of the last events of the summer and as a way to look forward to the fall and beginning of school.

“If they have the time, it's flexible, it's easy,” said volunteer Samantha Crooks. “My little's parents and her family has been really great to me so it's made it really easy for me to be involved with whatever schedule you have.”

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Elkhart County has been providing these services for the last 40 years.
