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. Sadly, what would have been the 29th annual reunion in 2020, and the 30th in 2021 were cancelled due to the global coronavirus pandemic, but we are planning to hold the reunion again in 2022, and it will once again be in Wardlow Park.
That said, the 31st annual Olvey Family picnic will be held on the 2nd Saturday in October, 2022 at Wardlow Park. The 2022 date will be October 8th. The park is centrally located with a children'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. It'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.
