Out of this World
Our Fourth of July theme this year is “Out of this World,” and the parade costume and float judges can hardly wait to see what you come up with for our futuris4c and alien theme! Prepare your floats and bikes and we will see you at the school at 11:30 a.m. for parade check-in. The kids’ bike parade will start at noon, and the main parade will begin at 12:30 p.m.
Great Day Planned
This year, even without our pool or Rec Center, our 4th of July will prove to be a full and exci4ng day! We are planning many ac4vi4es for all ages!
Start your morning with the ever-growing Fun Run, which begins atthe church. Afterwards, head to the
tennis courts for the LDS traditional free breakfast. Next is the parade at the school, then lunch by Noho’s Hawaiian Cafe and patriotic music by Larry Wilder. The early afternoon will be full of activity including family games, and NEW THIS YEAR are three inflatables: a bounce castle for our youngest, a water slide, and (rounding out the ages) a full-sized double-sided obstacle course! Finally get your arm warmed up to dunk your friends, neighbors, kids or parents in the dunk tank! Don’t forget BJ the Clown will entertain, and awards will be handed out. Last we wrap up the evening with the grand finale fireworks! What a day!
Noho's Hawaiian Cafe
Noho’s Hawaiian Café has agreed, as a personal favor after hearing about our displacement this year from the Rec Center, to cater our 4th of July lunch! Noho and his wife Shelley, one of the nicest couples I know, are providing a Hawaiian buffet for just $7 a plate starting at 1:30 p.m. We know this is a “break even” effort at best. A huge thank you to Noho for being such a great community supporter and friend! So please come on the 4th to the greenspace by the tennis courts and enjoy Noho’s famous Hawaiian food. If you have time to stop by one of their restaurants, I think you will be pleased!
Volunteers Desperately Needed!
Our 4th of July income is a direct result of the unbelievable hard work and dedication of volunteers. We are still very short this year due to not having our regular recreation registration day. At this point, we may fall short on dona4ons and might have to pull from our operating funds to pay for this iconic event. Please volunteer by emailing
Jennifer Davis at oakhills4thofJuly@gmail.com or sign up directly online at www.tiny.cc/oakhills4th.
Please Join the Cub Scouts at 10:30 a.m. on July 4th in the school parking lot to decorate your bikes for the parade. Some decora4ons will be provided, but dona4ons are always welcome.
