- Back 2 School Bash
Back 2 School Bash
The City of Lawton's Parks and Recreation Department will host its Ninth Annual Back 2 School Bash from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 5 at the Great Plains Coliseum, 920 SW Sheridan Road.
School supplies and back packs will be given away free during the event; community vendors will also be available to disseminate information to both parents and students.
“Having the chance to see the community rally to support one another and watching organizations work together to provide a service are just a few of the reasons I fell in love with Parks and Recreation long before becoming a coordinator,” said event organizer Shereyl Grubbs, City of Lawton coordinator.
Pre-registration for guaranteed supplies at the event require tickets, which can be picked up at the Patterson Community Center, 4 NE Arlington, July 31 through Aug. 3. Tickets will be distributed as supplies last to citizens who register for the event. All citizens wishing to register should have an ID and the children for which they are obtaining school supplies for present. On the day of the event, pre-registered parties may enter the coliseum at 9 a.m.; others who register on-site may enter at 10 a.m.
This community-sponsored event is made possible by generous donations, which will be accepted at the Owens Multipurpose Center, 1405 SW 11th, and Patterson Community Center, through 4 p.m. Aug. 4. Items needed include: No. 2 pencils, glue sticks, pink erasers, lined notebooks, folders, blue pens, red pens, black pens, rulers, packaged pencil crayons, packaged crayons, 1-inch binders, highlighters and back packs.
