We are just ONE more night away from our annual Summer party tomorrow (Saturday)!
We’ve heard from a bunch of you with beer, food, and equipment volunteering and things are coming together nicely.
A few bits we can always use more of:
Tables & chairs
MORE FOOD AND MORE BEER!
And we’ve got our setup work to do tonight starting at 6pm as well, if you’re free c’mon up!
Also, don’t forget that a big part of what we do each year revolves around charity work. We’ll be collecting donations at this event and would love it if you each dug into a closet or stopped into a box store to grab a few items to donate. All donations will go on to our partners in charity at The People Connection (formerly Ocean Park Community Center.)
