SABA would like to thank the hundreds of neighbors and friends who turned up for the July 4th parade and festivities this year, but we would especially like to thank the dedicated volunteers who made the event run so smoothly! Ticket-takers, hot dog cookers, water ice scoopers, Big Splash bucket-fillers, field game starters, set-up crew...it was due to your enthusiastic and patient assistance that the rest of us had so much fun.
One dedicated SABA member and officer, Ed Magargee, created a video
collage of the day, linked below. Enjoy it!
Come on out on the 4th! Our bike parade will leave from Chestnutwold Elementary at 10:00am and end up at Elwell Field, where the festivities will begin with a "best-decorated" bike/stroller/wagon contest. Then, if you’re hot, get under the Big Splash! If you’re hungry, hot dogs, pretzels, water ice, baked goods, and cold drinks will be available for purchase. There is no rain date for this event. If the weather is questionable, please check back here to verify the event’s status.
We need volunteers on the day of the event!
If you plan to attend, please consider helping out in any way you can: set up, lend a pop-up tent, donate some cupcakes, work the food table or sell tickets for a half hour.
