The date is set for our annual back to school picnic! This year we’ve got a few different things, like temporary tattoos and glow necklaces. We also have a DJ and photo booth. We’ll have full sized samples of GoGo Squeeze, as well as a food truck with meal and a la cart options. There will also be an ice cream truck. Be on the look out for more information as the date gets closer.
