Be the coolest handing out ice cream as a Columbia Heights Community Picnic volunteer! Each summer the city holds a simple gathering of neighbors and city services alike. Formerly known as the “Police Picnic”, this annual event is hosted by many others including city staff, the fire department, civic organizations, local businesses, and several volunteer groups.
HeightsNEXT contributes by hosting an ice cream stand. Flavor names represent sustainable ideas, such as “Green Tech” (mint) or “Community Compost” (chocolate).
