School Kickoff Night at Recreation Point, Bass Lake August 27, click here for details and directions.
This is a reminder that our “School Kick-Off Night” is planned for tomorrow, August 28th at Recreation Point in Bass Lake. This will be a fun and relaxing time to see old friends and meet new ones. The event is planned to last from approximately 4 to 6:30pm.
Bring a picnic dinner and any refreshments you might want to enjoy. If you wish to BBQ, you must provide your own propane grill due to fire restrictions that are in place. The 8th graders will be selling desert to raise funds for their 8th grade trip.
So bring a Frisbee, your swimsuit, or even a kayak and meet us at the lake tomorrow for some Home School fun. We do ask that parents supervise their children near the water for there are no official lifeguards on duty. For directions to Recreation point check see that map below or click here. You can also call Eric Hagen at (559) 642-1422 ext 16 for more information. Hope to see you there!
