Nice weather meant a large turnout for the WINGS Educational Foundation Picnic in the Park on Friday, May 4, at the Washington Fairgrounds.

The event featured a BBQ dinner and plenty of family fun. There were bounce houses, a balloon-bending clown, face painting, hula-hoops, and other games and activities.  

Several of the School District of Washington’s musical ensembles performed, including the Washington High School and Middle School vocal and band groups.

The menu featured pulled-pork sandwiches, pork steaks, nachos, and hot dogs and pork burgers for children.

The WINGS Educational Foundation hosts the picnic and other events to raise money for our schools.

Earlier in the day, WINGS volunteers delivered BBQ lunches to local businesses as part of the fundraiser.

Photos from the WINGS Picnic in the Park are below.


The Cocoa Cafe at Washington High School recently donated $100 to the WINGS Education Foundation.

WINGS promotes educational excellence by providing teacher grants, student scholarships for continued education, state-of-the-art equipment and recognition of outstanding faculty and staff achievement.

The Cocoa Cafe opened in 2005 with a $1,000 grant from WINGS.

Over the last 13 years, many students with disabilities have gained communication skills outside of the regular classroom experience.

Washington High School and the surrounding communities understand the importance of giving life skills students the opportunity to gain work experience that will help following graduation.

The focus of the cafe is to teach job skills, independence, and people skills while promoting The Cocoa Cafe.

Pictured below are WHS special services students who work at the Cocoa Café presenting the check for $100 to WINGS representatives Brad Mitchell and Carol Zanin.
