WHAT'S HAPPENING IN SAUGANASH PARK:
Welcome, summer! So glad you could make it! We extend a hearty congratulations to all of our local graduates, and best of luck as you move upward and onward in your academic or professional careers! School's out, the weather's great, the grills have been fired up, flowers and vegetables planted, and we're all ready to enjoy the best of our city. The festivals, concerts and outdoor movies have begun, and we're all ready to meet friends under sunny skies and balmy breezes. You don't have to go far for one of the best events of the year, as it happens right here in our own neighborhood! Yes, we're talking about our Annual 4th of July Parade & Picnic, a time-honored tradition that brings the entire Sauganash community together. This wonderful event comes to you courtesy of the hard work and planning of our association's board in conjunction with our neighboring association (SCA), and the dues-paying members of our communities, All dues-paying members and their families are welcome for a day of food, entertainment and fun! We hope that non-members who join us will consider membership and that guests outside of the area will consider a donation for what is sure to be an enjoyable morning. 2016-17 membership applications will soon be mailed, and the dues remain steady at $30 per household!
Of course, the picnic itself is an undertaking of somewhat large proportion. It takes planning, budgeting, coordination and execution. Just like Uncle Sam says, "WE NEED YOU!" This event cannot come to fruition without many helping hands. We need volunteers of all kinds (teens welcome!): early morning unloading of food, tables and equipment; people to wrap and serve cooked hot dogs in foil; people to breakdown and clean up; and some responsible adults to accept 2016-17 membership applications and dues. Please contact board member Mike Frasure via e-mail @ firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (312) 401.3675 if you're able to help! The work begins at 7:00 AM and will end around 1:00 PM. Even an hour of your time is a great contribution!
We look forward to seeing all of you in the community all summer long and at Sauganash Park on the 4th! Get ready to sport the red, white and blue!
