Village of Taneyville enjoys annual picnic

On Saturday, June 23, residents of the Village of Taneyville and surrounding areas enjoyed the annual Community Picnic, held in Sullenger Park just off Hwy. 76 in Taneyville. Attendees enjoyed live music and a car show, along with delicious offerings from food and snack vendors, while browsing several other vendors offering craft items and some great flea-market bargains.


On the hot afternoon, festival-goers were able to visit a cooling station while chatting with Central Taney County firefighters and first responders. Several candidates for county offices were also on hand to get better acquainted with the constituents they hope to serve.


After winding down activities in the park, many community members made their way to the baseball field at the nearby Taneyville School for a cookout dinner sponsored by LODGE Church and Ministries. There were also games, face-painting, a cakewalk and chances to win fun raffle items, while awaiting the patriotic celebration and fireworks display that wrapped up the day.


Village officials said the annual get-together is a way to continue the spirit of community that has characterized the Ozarks for many generations; LODGE Ministries leaders agreed, saying their goal is to bring people together in fellowship, share the love of Christ, and let them know there are caring people who are ready to help in time of need.


Anyone new to the area, or who hasn’t ventured into the central and eastern portions of Taney County except for the occasional courthouse or license office business, will enjoy a drive along the scenic stretches of Highways 76 and 160, handy to some good fishing and with some great local dining establishments and shady community parks.
