Join WIB-RTP for our 3rd annual family picnic! There will be delicious barbeque, outdoor games for kids and adults, and the perfect atmosphere for relaxed networking. Bring your dog, family, or a friend – there’s a playground and dog park nearby.  Drinks, barbeque, and vegetarian options will be provided, and we ask that you bring a side or dessert to share.
