Oswego Industries, Inc. Hosts Annual Consumer Picnic

Oswego Industries, Inc. recently hosted its annual picnic for program participants and employees at its main facility in Fulton.

This year’s picnic, attended by nearly 400 people, offered many different avenues for entertainment.

Program participants were encouraged to take their chance at soaking their favorite staff member in the dunking booth or catch a fly ball in the company softball game, after everyone had their share of picnic fare.

Other events included autographs from local race car drivers, hay rides and a fire truck and ambulance on-site to explore.

To escape the heat, inside participants enjoyed bingo, crafts and face painting, while the DJ played all of the hits to dance away to. Also featured for those folks who stayed out of the sun, Bill Schilly visited with Baily, his therapy dog.

The picnic was also made possible by donations from local businesses, including New York Bakery, Pepsi, Sysco and Hudson’s Dairy.
