Our Annual Picnic – Friendship, Delicious Dishes, Great Conversation, and Beautiful Music.


On Tuesday, August 16, 2022, Stroke Support Association held its annual picnic at Mae Boyar Park in Lakewood, California. The summer heat was tempered by a lovely, cooling breeze. About 25 support group members and facilitators attended the event. Each brought a dish to share, including fried chicken, pasta salads, fruit salads, beet salads, sandwiches, and desserts.

It was a relaxing time, filled with conversation and laughter.

Alvin Hayes, Jr., a professional musician and a member of our stroke survivor support group, graced the occasion by playing his saxophone.

Many thanks to Alvin!


At the end of the picnic, we held a just-for-fun raffle with ten green or flowering plants as prizes. Cheryl from our caregiver support group donated three of her gorgeous succulent arrangements.

Thanks go to Cheryl!
