'Picnic in the Park' supports local military personnel

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Remarkable Properties LLC and Daniels and Associates held their first "Picnic in the Park" at Ida Bell Young Park in support of military personnel.

Many people gathered at the park Saturday to show gratitude and appreciation to local military members.

"We wanted to do something for the community to give them the opportunity to say thank you," organizer Keith Daniels said. "A lot of times, people don't understand what goes into that sacrifice that we have to make as individuals to be in the military. This is just a way for them say thank you for what you do."

Many people in the community volunteered to make the event a success and came together as a way just to say thank you to the men and women of the U.S. military for all they do.
