Model Nepal Society hosted its annual Potluck Picnic on Saturday, June 15 at Lake Fairfax in Reston. A reported 400 community members attended the daylong event at which they renewed old friendships and made new ones, shared favorite dishes, and more.
Reston resident Ashwini Sigdel, an eighth grader at Langston Hughes Middle School, joined in the fun. Afterward, Sigdel said that she and her friends explored the park and its offerings. "It was really fun. There were lots of people (and) I got to hang out with many of my friends," she said.
Herndon Town Councilmember Pradip Dhakal attended the morning-to-sunset event with his family. After Dhakal gave a "big thanks" to all the volunteers who worked tirelessly to make the picnic successful, he added: "This is a great event that brings the community together, builds camaraderie amongst us, and creates an environment of mutual trust and help."
