Back 2 School Bash 2018


The City of Lawton’s Parks and Recreation Department is seeking donations to host its Tenth Annual Back 2 School Bash from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 4 at the Great Plains Coliseum, 920 SW Sheridan Road.

School supplies and back packs are given away free during this event; community vendors will also be available to disseminate information to parents and students.
“The Back 2 School Bash is a wonderful event for the community,” said event organizer Shereyl Grubbs, City of Lawton Parks and Recreation coordinator. “We’re relying heavily on donations to make the event happen this year and are hopeful for another great Back 2 School Bash!”

In addition to providing schools supplies, this event helps to acquaint citizens with their community, Grubbs said, by providing information on many of the resources available to them in Lawton.

Backpacks and monetary donations will be accepted throughout the weeks to come. Sponsorship opportunities are also available for businesses and organizations that wish to have their logo displayed at the event and on materials promoting the event. Those interested should contact Grubbs.

On-site activities will include haircuts, musical entertainment, vaccinations and information booths. Those wishing to pre-register for guaranteed supplies must do so July 30 through August 1 at the Patterson Community Center, 4 NE Arlington. 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 at 9 a.m.; others who register on-site may enter at 10 a.m.

For more information, contact the City of Lawton Parks and Recreation Department at (580)581.3400.
