The South Fork Valley Community Association’s [SFVCA] Annual Summer Celebration is on Saturday, July 16th. The fundraiser and community gathering is an opportunity for residents to meet and enjoy one another’s company.
The event starts at noon at Josh Vander Yacht Park in Van Zandt, across Highway 9 from the Everybody’s Store. People are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch, lawn chairs, and a dish to share (if desired). There will be a fire going for people to cook on and local vegetables will be provided. Admission is free, but donations for the association, as well as Food Bank items will be collected for Local Food Works.
At 4pm the annual Honoring Our Children event will be held, in which names of local children who have died are read aloud. Music starts at 5 pm beginning with Mockingbird, followed by Beet (a band featuring local teen girls), and then BandZandt will play its blues and rock until dusk.
SGSF will have an information table at the event.
Please consider joining the party this year and celebrating the life and people that make up the picturesque region of the South Fork Valley.
