| Greetings!|Hopefully everyone is having a fun and relaxing summer break! This year's Welcome Back BBQ promises to be BIGGER and BETTER than ever! We are SO excited about this year's BBQ that we just had to give you a preview of what's in store. As in years past we will sell wristbands for $5.00 to help defray the cost of this fun family event. The wristband will allow your child access to both the inflatables and Game Dudes mobile game truck all afternoon while you enjoy a cold beverage with friends. Windy City Ice Cream will have a truck on hand stocked with all your favorite summer treats ($2). As always the adult beverages are free, but donations are greatly appreciated!
We are looking for volunteers to help grill, work (is it really work?) the Miller Coors Beer Garden, Duckhorn Wine Tent, Used Equipment Sale, sell wristbands and raffle tickets, and help set up and tear down. GREAT NEWS - no adults will be assigned to man the inflatables! Back by popular demand - our college age volunteers! It takes a lot of help to pull off the BBQ. Consider donating just an hour of your time. Please contact Gretchen Cockey if interested.
