On Friday, May 19th, OPIE held its annual summer picnic at Strouds Run State Park. Students, faculty, and alumni enjoyed boating and playing sports in the warm weather. The students at the picnic were from various countries around the world, including China, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and Oman. Chams, Lebanese restaurant in Parkersburg, West Virginia provided the food for the picnic. Dinner was beef shawarma, chicken with rice, hummus, baba ganoush, pita bread, fattoush, and baklava. It was a fun day, and we were happy to spend it with so many wonderful people. We hope you will all join us again for our next picnic in the fall.
