CALLING ALL PARENTS!!
Is anyone with a hitch available to take the Check Wagon to or from the river for this Sunday, April 22nd???
CHUCK WAGON TRANSPORT is extremely important as we need to keep our children fed and hydrated!! There are no concessions available to purchase food even in an emergency!
Thanks to Ann Hida who stepped in last Sunday at the last minute!!
We are also asking all parents to let us know if you have the capability of towing the chuck wagon (ie. a big enough vehicle that has a hitch)! Please ! if you are able to help with this, please contact: Joe O’Keefe (201-486-6184; firstname.lastname@example.org), Katie Saladucha (201-344-1942; email@example.com), or Ann Hida (917-664-7681; firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are able to help out.
