Ocean View Ice Cream Social!

11am – 1pm Saturday September 23 at the Ocean View lawn and playground

Come take advantage of the last days of summer weather, and meet old and new Ocean View friends at this free event. The PTA will be serving ice cream cups and will also have a painting project for kids as part of the OV PTA’s Buchanan St. Fence Beautification Project. (Please note we will be using acrylic paints which does not wash out well from clothes. We will have a limited supply of smocks available but still recommend dressing your child accordingly.)

We need volunteers to help set up at 10 am, serve the ice cream, assist with the painting project and clean up. Any amount of time you can spare is appreciated. If you can help out please email ebbadlr@yahoo.com.
