Dawson Play at Gillis Park

Bring your kids and meet with Vicki Gercans at Gillis Park each Saturday – For Dawson Play!

“Hi Neighbors!

Since the rain brought slightly cooler weather (anything under 100 is Fall right), I’ve noticed more families out and about in the neighborhood. With my early riser it got me thinking that it would be fun to have some neighborhood play time and get to know each other. Would anyone else be interested in meeting up at Gillis Park on Sat mornings. Have just a drop-in window of maybe 7:30am-9:30am or later. We could start next Sat 9/27. Kids of all ages welcome, as well as pjs and coffee

Hope to see you there!
