Water Ice Social

Water Ice Social

We are having our 2nd Annual Water Ice evening!! Meet at the Island on Aug. 4th from 7 to 8 pm. Please bring your own chair, sunscreen and bug spray.  Four different flavors will be featured this year.  

Please pass the word on to any new neighbors that have moved in since last year. There will be a table to sign up for future email notifications and registration to the Greater Gladstone Association, and a box for donation towards the water ice. We usually ask $25.00 for registration for the year per family to cover the cost of Holiday Decorations for the Island, the electric bill for the lights and gardening supplies for the spring and fall. Any and all donations are acceptable. We are EXTREMELY grateful to those donors who have been able to keep us alive with their generous donations!

We are working on Greater Gladstone T Shirts, planning a Greater Gladstone History Night, and a fall clean up before Holiday decorations. Dawn still could use some help with weeds in the flower beds on our beautiful Island.  Come up anytime and just break the weeds that are strangling the plants. Not hard to miss them, there are many.
