We had a great turn out and the weather was terrific! Thank you to all the families and teachers who attended. Special thanks to our great PTO Volunteers and to our rockin' Patton Teacher DJ Mr. John Walsh!

Several local businesses sponsored the event through monetary donations or discounted goods. We especially thank these businesses for their support of our Patton families: Unionville Chadds Ford Education Foundation, Crozer Brinton Lake, Hendrix Orthodontics, Fox's Pizza Kennett Square, Costco, and Bernie's Original Italian Water Ice and One Stop Party Shop.  Please patronize these businesses and when you do, thank them for their support of the Patton New Family Picnic!
