Back to School BBQ | Friday, September 6, 2019 | 5-7pm

The perfect way to come back together after a long summer! Featuring:

  • Face painting, a bubble-making station, corn hole and more!

  • DJ Aaron (Campbell) is going to be at the BBQ. Plan for dancing, singing, and maybe some karaoke!

  • Chili Cook-Off – bring a pot of chili to share and enter to win a trophy (for only one year...then it gets passed on) and bragging rights! Your chili will also make a great hot dog topping.

  • Bring a dessert to share - homemade, home-baked or store bought...we just ask that there are no nuts please.

  • Back to School Supply Drive (list below!) benefitting Olympic Hills Elementary. Please bring to the BBQ (sorry, we cannot accept donations prior to the event). Thank you in advance for whatever you can donate!
