Bring a lawn chair. There will be hot dogs, hamburgers and barbecue chicken ready at 5pm. Please bring a side dish or dessert.

And, there’s going to be a whole lot of fun including cornhole, tetherball, horseshoes, badminton. John and Ethel have also offered the use of the pool, but please note that there won’t be a lifeguard on duty, so you’ll have to swim at your own risk.

All current neighborhood residents and former residents are invited! See you there!
