It’s time once again for the Clifford Volunteer Fireman’s picnic, now through Saturday night where the Miller family of Elkdale and their friends have manned the sausage stand each year for as long as anyone can remember.
The sausage stand is just one of many great food stands and attractions at the picnic. Come up with your friends and family and enjoy!
