The Back-to-School Bash is an outreach to the Lapel community and an important mission of Ford Street Church and Gentle Shepherd’s Preschool & Childcare.

There will be educational booths, health demonstrations and screenings, as well as several fun activities, all free to the public.

We will have carnival games, bounce houses, “Dunk Your Teacher” Dunk Tank (teachers & times listed below), and so much more for the kids to participate in and enjoy.

Besides the fun and educational booths, we will have a basket raffle and silent auction (cash or credit only).  Proceeds from the raffle/auction will help purchase backpacks, required school supplies, new shoes, and socks for local children in need.

Lapel spirit wear and food will also be available for purchase.  Please see the attached flyer for details.  Help Ford Street Church & Gentle Shepherd’s Childcare support our community and have a blast with your family and friends at the same time.

We hope to see you August 2nd from 4-7 p.m.!!!
