Valparaiso Firefighters L1124 Annual Picnic
This highly-attended in-person event has returned! Valparaiso Firefighters Local 1124 invite you to enjoy a free lunch, visit with the firefighters, learn about fire safety, look at the Fire/EMS apparatus, play at FOUNDATION MEADOWS/BUTTERFLY MEADOWS AND CATERPILLAR CROSSING PARK, and run through the water curtain.
Please bring sunscreen, hat/sunglasses, beach towel, bathing suit, and dry clothes/shoes!
At this event we are inviting 2 non-profit organizations that help Porter County students in need to fundraise for their causes:
* The Valpo Schools Foundation Backpack Program. For their back to school drive, they are collecting: backpacks, dry erase markers, pencils, 3-ring binders, headphones/ear buds, reusable water bottles, games and puzzles (age 6-12). For more information, please visit their website www.valposchoolsfoundation.org.
* Dressed for School. They are accepting donations of unused clothing (with tags still on) in children's sizes 5-18, new children's gym shoes in whole and half sizes, as well as monetary donations. This nonprofit organization provides new clothing to elementary students from low-income families or families in crisis in a supportive store-like environment, free of charge. For more information about what great things they do, please visit www.dressedforschool.org.
Donations to these 2 causes are completely voluntary. We'd love to see you either way!!
**Children MUST be accompanied by family/guardian throughout the event**
