The dog days of summer may be behind us… but not without a classic CIG puppy picnic! CIG’s Culture Committee planned the most anticipated event of the summer as CIG’ers brought their furry friends and not-so-furry families to Forsberg Park for a day of puppy playtime, barbecuing and mingling.

The menu included picnic classics – delicious burgers and hot dogs with all the fixin’s, a slew of scrumptious salads, even a gooey s’mores bars for dessert! And what’s a CIG gathering without some Colorado beer to sip on?

While CIG snacked and socialized, the pups spent their afternoon running around the park, napping in the shade and occasionally stopping for a photo op with team members. Every CIG’er – including the four-legged ones – went home with a full stomach and some fun memories of the hot July day.
