In normal years, the annual Olvey Family picnic is held on the 2nd Saturday in October. Traditionally it has been held in a public park. For many years, we changed locations every year, but we eventually settled on Wardlow Park in Long Beach, CA as a standard location. In 2018 rain forced us to move the reunion indoors, but we still had a great time visiting with family and sharing food at a local Long Beach pizza parlor. In 2019 we decided to again hold the reunion at a local Long Beach restaurant. I don't know if that practice will continue for future reunions; we'll have to wait and see. Sadly, what would have been the 29th annual reunion in 2020 was cancelled due to the global coronavirus pandemic, but we are all looking forward to holding the reunion again in 2021.
That said, the 29th annual Olvey Family picnic will be held on the 2nd Saturday in October, 2021. For the time being it is assumed that it will be held at Wardlow Park. The 2021 date will be October 9th. The park is centrally located with a childrenâ€™s playground, a softball diamond, restroom facilities (you might want to bring toilet paper, just in case), as well as everything you need for a great picnic. Itâ€™s located at Wardlow Road and Stanbridge Ave., two blocks west of Bellflower Blvd., in Long Beach. We normally meet by the children's playground about a third of the way up Stanbridge Avenue from Wardlow Road.
