·         See Saw

·         Kids Pool

·         Ladder Toss

If you have any other ideas or would like to lend a fun activity to this event please contact hillwood@gmail.com.

The GHCA will be providing hamburgers, hot dogs, and water.  We would like to ask:

·         Homes that end in an even number bring something sweet.

·         Homes that end in an odd number to bring something salty

If you can’t join us please consider donating to the party – there is always a need for items like:  Plates, Solo Cups, Napkins, Water, Sofa, Tin Foil, Charcoal, etc… Every item donated makes a BIG difference J

For donations please contact hillwood@gmail.com to arrange for a drop off time and location.
