MESA, Ariz. — The 50th Ottumwa/ Wapello County Picnic will be held Sunday, March 9 in Mesa, Ariz. Snowbirds, relocated Ottumwans and anyone wanting to escape the frigid Iowa temperatures are invited to attend.
The potluck picnic offers wonderful Ottumwa specialties, door prizes, photos and the opportunity to reminisce and update memories.
Sponsors for this year’s event include Antique Airplane Association, Bowling Motors & RV Sales, Bubba-Q's, Vaughn Automotive and Wapello County Historical Society.
We have received conformation that several “first-timers” will be attending this year. We look forward to welcoming them and seeing the many other Ottumwans attending. For more information and directions, visit OttumwaPicnic.com or contact Tom Gegenheimer at 480-289-0521.
