    4th of July Parade and Picnic

    The Orchard Ridge Neighborhood Association goes big for Independence Day! The annual Fourth of July parade and picnic is for members, and their families and guests-- and you can join right at the picnic!

    The parade begins July 4 at 11:30 a.m. at the east Whitcomb and Loruth intersection, proceeding north and then west down Loruth Terrace to Orchard Ridge Park, where we serve our primo picnic lunch--brats, hot dogs, burgers, chips, potato salad, watermelon, baked beans, ice cream--all free for members. You can join--or donate--right at the picnic.

    So rig out your baby buggy, bike, skateboard, scooter, or wagon, and deck yourself in patriotic motif to join the parade. Meet the honored Grand Marshal, Orchard Ridge Pioneer Tom McKenna, and greet the firefighters atop their truck. Take a selfie with Uncle Sam!

    At the picnic grounds, mix and mingle with new and old friends and take a hop into the popular inflatable obstacle course (a.k.a. "bouncy castle"), always a hit with kids and adults alike.

    Our annual Winter Social meets again at Vitense Saturday February 17. Besides good conversations and good food, door prizes are again being offered from our generous resident businesses. It will be surprise to me if attendees didn't walk away with more than one prize. 

    Besides special gift cards from Vitense, you may feast on prizes from Michael's, Seafood Center, Papa Murphy's, Gino's Italian Deli, and Copper Top. Home improvements from Dorn, Creative Expressions, Light Haus Glass, Happily Ever After (for the little ones). Rumor has it some lucky kids will riding in style this spring and summer with some gifts from Pacific Cycle. 

    You will also be able to renew your membership to Orchard Ridge Neighborhood Association at the Winter Social. We'll be accepting cash, check, and credit cards (new for this year). 

    Thanks to Brian Hanneman, Lori Connor for putting this together, and Hallie Evenson of Vitense for coordinating.
