6/15/17 Columbian Park, Entrance Sign

Original entryways, now not open to traffic, offer reminders of Columbian Park's historic presence in its Lafayette neighborhood.

Greater Lafayette Indivisible will host its annual persistence picnic and voter registration callout Saturday after missing its event last year.

"We can get back out in the community like we used to," said Chris Hegarty, vice president for nonprofit organization purposes in GLI.

The event will be focused on training people to register voters, but volunteers will be on hand to register people to vote as well.

Greater Lafayette Indivisible is a progressive activism group that is a part of the national Indivisible movement. GLI has invited several other local progressive groups to the picnic.

Lisa Dullum, a member of GLI's steering committee and an organizer, said that based on past picnics, she expects 40 to 50 participants.

"It's hard to know because this is a post-COVID event," Dullum said.

The free event will be noon to 3 p.m. at Columbian Park's blue shelter No. 4. Drinks, snacks and picnic games will be provided.

Participants are asked to wear masks and practice social distancing.
