ABOUT THE STEVENSVILLE CIVIC CLUB
What we do
Stevensville's Creamery Picnic is an event organized by the Stevensville Civic Club. Organized in 1953, the club is a non-profit organization that carries a focus on the people of our community, projects that improve the place we live, and partnerships with our neighbors and community organizations.
Creamery Picnic supports the mission of Civic Club in many ways: Providing an opportunity to celebrate our people and heritage and funding the many projects that the Club takes on annually, many of which happen because of the strong partnerships that Civic Club has built in the community.
