If you are interested in joining a group of volunteers to start cleaning up the Kenny school grounds, we’d love to have you join us on July 24 and after!
Kenny School Clean-Up Day
Saturday, July 24
east side of Kenny school
Please join a group of volunteers in cleaning up the east side of the Kenny school grounds. All are welcome - this is a combined group of Kenny School parents and staff, Kenny neighborhood residents and friends, and Master Gardeners.
What we'll do: clean gardens, pull weeds, remove volunteer trees, prune shrubs and start the groundwork for preparing a pollinator garden.
What gardening knowledge you need: basically, none! Master Gardeners will create clean-up plans, answer questions, and highlight how/what needs to be completed.
What to bring: power trimmers (and people to operate them!), shovels, weeders, clean tools, garden gloves, bags, trucks for hauling garden debris.
Who to bring: fun people who are interested in preparing Kenny School for a successful back-to-school and making the school grounds something that is a beautiful spot within our community.

Thursday, July 22
Kenny Neighborhood Association (KNA) is hosting a fun evening for all ages at Kenny Park on July 22. Pack you own picnic dinner or purchase dinner from the El Jefe food truck. Bring a blanket, chair or use the picnic area for seating.
Once you’re done eating, head over to the KNA tent for a FREE dessert (popsicles or something similar.)
Then we’ll have lots of fun, family-friendly entertainment for all ages! We are welcoming DJ Dave Premack to spin some tunes and emcee special activities and dances (Simon Says, air guitar contest, Hokey Pokey, the Chicken Dance, etc.)
And if THAT wasn’t enough, we’re also welcoming a couple of entertainers for some hands-on fun. Sir Sydney Soapington, the Baron of Bubble, will delight the crowd with this bubble displays and will also have supplies for people to try out the art of bubble making. His partner, The Rainbow Lady of Balloon, will twist and create balloon animals or objects to take home with you!
If you’ve got one, please bring a yard game to share for some extra play time.
*Please note: we are not having bounce houses or carnival games as it is difficult to socially distance with those activities.
