  • Please arrive at your site by 8:45 a.m. on Saturday, June 7.  The clean up will run from 9 a.m.-Noon.
  • Bring water in a reusable container and maybe a snack to keep your energy up.
  • Please make sure all children who are NOT accompanied by a parent bring a signed Parental Permission Form.
  • We love pictures! Please send any shots you take of the event to ctbd@cbf.org.
  • And, of course . . . have fun!
