3rd Annual Event-April 16-17
Thank you to everyone who registered for Fathers-N-Flashlights, we are looking forward to another great event this year!
There have been a few questions surrounding the new trash deposit. When you bring your labeled trash bag to us at check out you will get your original check back. We don't want anyone's $75. We want to be able to use our park again and to leave it as pristine or nicer than it was when we got there. Last year a handful of volunteers were at the park until 4:00pm on Sunday picking up a dumpster worth of trash including discarded tents, chairs and more tent signs than you could count. Let's all do our part in keeping our beautiful neighborhood clean!
Be on the look out for a Sign Up Genius to volunteer for this amazing event! Moms may not attend the event in any capacity unless you sign up for a shift and volunteer.
