July Jamboree benefits Neighborhood House

There’s nothing like summertime fun for a good cause.  That’s what is happening at Abiding Presence Lutheran Church, 1550 Walton Blvd, Rochester Hills on Saturday July 28 from 2-7:30 p.m.  The July Jamboree features food, fellowship, friends and fund raising to benefit Rochester Neighborhood House.

At 2 p.m. “A Wheelie Good Time Parade” will depart from the parking lot by Caribou Coffee and travel the bike path to Abiding Presence.  Prizes will be awarded for Most Patriotic, Most Decrepit, Most Michiganian, Most Summertime Fun, Most Hollywood, Worst Mechanical Condition Yet Crosses the Finish Line, and best representation of the theme, “Love your Neighborhood House.”  Non-motorized bikes, wagons, skateboards, scooters, wheelchairs, walkers with wheels, roller skates–anything with wheels and imagination–are welcome. No preregistration is required.

County fair-type games, contests and crafts for all ages will be held on the church grounds. Prepare to get wet; water games and the Slip and Slide will be on loan from the Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm, as well as Super Soaker Soccer, Tug a War, Pet Tricks  Balloon Toss, Croquet, Marshmallow Catapault and Hula Hooping. Cooks should be digging out their favorite recipes for Sweet Treats Contest. Treats will be served as part of the “Down Home Picnic” scheduled for 4:30 p.m.

Music and dancing (as in line dancing/square dancing) and karaoke will top off the Jamboree after the picnic.  Activities will end at 7:30 p.m.

Donation is by check payable to APLC, with Neighborhood House on the memo line.  There is no set amount; just Love Your Neighbor as you are able. Funds will go to Rochester Neighborhood House. There will be no additional charges for activities other than the meal. Reservations will be needed for planning the meal (chicken, salads, sweet treats, etc.). Suggested minimum donation for the meal is $8/$4 under 2 years to 11 years.
