A hungry and happy crowd gathered at Knute Nelson’s annual community picnic on Tuesday, August 12 in Alexandria. Multiple generations enjoyed the beautiful weather as they gathered in front of the building for food and entertainment.

Besides Erickson’s Petting Zoo, which showcased a newly-born llama, newly-born pony, and bunnies, along with other classic farmyard animals, the people were entertained by the Slew Foot Family Band.

Face painting for all ages and balloon animals were also offered, as well as a tour of the newly-remodeled short-term rehab center.
