Oxford Park Day - June 15 and July 20



June 15 and July 20 we will meet from 10 to noon at Freedom Park–that's the playground at Oxford Park where we usually meet! 

They should have the sprinklers running, 
so bathing suits are a great idea! 
Bring a picnic lunch and hang awhile longer if you wish!
