Abstract
Children and parents alike laugh and play during a picnic on a sunny day in an unidentified park. Games played include wheelbarrow races, one-legged races, and volleyball. Based on the title, this film was likely made during a company picnic for the UnIted States Postal Service, for which JoAnn Elam worked for many years as a mail carrier. The similarities in form and content to "Post Office Picnic" (F.2011-01-0130) suggest the two are intended for presentation as double projection, in which the two films would be projected side by side simultaneously.
