Hi all,

Due to unforeseen circumstances, our beloved Bard had to back out.   I have procured another vendor.   Pecos Pit Barbecue will be selling 40 plates!   Quantities are limited.

Here is signup genius info.   I need final numbers by 8/24


After over a year and a half without our annual summer picnic…. It’s back!!!!! We will have our summer picnic on Saturday, August 28th from 3-7pm at the park. Plan on seeing old friends and making new ones! Here is the info: Food: We are having Pecos Pit Barbecue cater our event! More details to follow. Or, you can bring your own stuff. Due to COVID, there will be no potluck this year. As far as utensils, we will have cups, napkins and silverware, or, you can bring your own-whatever you are comfortable with. Drinks: We will have lemonade and water. Brad Simmons and his beer are back as well! The High Valley pub will be open for business-this is made possible by donations, so if you are planning on drinking the beer, please consider making a donation. Entertainment: We will have a live band, brought to you by the awesome Steve Manning and Co. Feel free to bring any sporting goods to play, soccer, kickball, volleyball… you name it. We all know how much the kiddos love water, so even though we won’t have a water bouncy house, we will have a slip and slide and sprinkler. Bring your water squirter so you can help keep your loved ones cool (on the tennis court)! Also, since the picnic is just a few days before school, let’s have a back to school ice cream social for the kiddos! Each kid will get one free ice cream. Additional ice cream will be available for purchase. Usually the ice cream is around $2 to $3 a pop. Laura Anderson will have tickets to hand out that you then present to ice cream vendor. Ice cream vendor will be there from 5 to 7pm.

Maple Hills Community has invited us to join them for National Night Out! Come down to the Maple Hills Park next Tuesday, August 3rd at 5pm.  King County Sheriff will be there to chat with community members!  The Maple Hills Community has also procured 2000 water balloons, along with a dozen nerf guns and darts and also, kickball! There will also be an ice cream truck!    The Scouts are cooking up a hot dog dinner for free! Learn about area services and small businesses right in the Maple Hills Community.   There will also be a live DJ that will take your requests.   This is sponsored by a dedicated group of volunteers and King County Area Services.   Food ends at 7pm-followed by a movie at dusk. This will be our second time to be invited to time with this wonderful neighboring community! Please let me know if you have any questions!
