On Saturday, May 4th, the LA Chapter of Harvard Alumni for Education co-hosted a picnic with First-Generation Harvard Alumni LA and the Harvard Club of Southern California at Elysian Park in Los Angeles. 47 people RSVPed, with 20 humans and two dogs in attendance. :)
The hosts provided beverages and guests brought their own food and picnic blankets. Folks formed a large circle of blankets as they arrived, with a trove of snacks available for sharing in the middle. One person brought treats from a French bakery, another brought pastries from Chinatown, and one even brought hand-cut watermelon for all to enjoy.
Guests mingled with each other, with conversations about traveling, pets, work, and family. In the late afternoon, some guests went home while others explored the hiking trails of Elysian Park, eventually finding the famous "Secret Swing" with panoramic views of the city! A good time was had by all.
