The Community is having a workday this Saturday Aug 2, 2014        8 AM to 1 PM

We need to make our parks where our children can use them again.

If you care about your kids having a place to play – come join us.

We are selling chances on a shotgun.

Children are having a lemonade stand.

Kids are playing old fashion games such as sack races, soccer, hoola hoop contest, etc.

Men are repairing rotten boards & building bridges.

All material will be on site. Need volunteers to bring gloves, and cleaning supplies (to wash tables and swings).  Bring water hoses (with your name on them).  Will have hot dogs and cookies.  Bring a cooler with drinks and any other snacks you want.

Anyone wanting to make posters for the highway, please do so. But make sure when putting out, you have property owner’s permission and is NOT in the right of way. Please bring basic tools.

Let’s work together to help make our park safer for our kids! Hope to see you there!  Come build bridges with us & support YOUR community.
