Welcome Back Family Picnic  & 5K Fun Run

Every September, FSYF hosts a Welcome Back Family Picnic at Nottoway Park in Vienna, VA. The picnic is a great opportunity for FS families to gather, network, reconnect, meet newcomers and welcome back families returning from overseas. Incorporating a healthy lifestyle theme with the picnic, FSYF is delighted to once again host a 5K family fun run inside the park. 

This potluck event is otherwise free of charge and is open to all families who serve in the Foreign Affairs community. In addition to food and  camaraderie, we offer free face painting by the gifted Arla Albers ( and classic picnic games.  

Teens who are interested in participating and earning some volunteer hours are encouraged to contact the Executive Director.  There are plenty of great opportunities to help organize this fun event.
