Public invited to Back to School Bash
The Back to School Bash is back. The annual event will be on Saturday, Aug. 4, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the courthouse lawn. This is the sixth year for the Bash, sponsored by the Goldendale Church of the Nazarene with the help of generous community partners.
Last year’s Bash was a hit with 500 bags of school supplies given out. As always there will be a drawing for free backpacks filled with school supplies for kindergarten through high school. There will be one boy and one girl from each lower grade that will receive a backpack and one boy and one girl from the high school as well. Students must register by 12:30 p.m. and must be present to win. The prize drawing will be at 1 p.m.
The Klickitat County Sheriffs Office and Goldendale Police Department will be at the Bash along with KVH hospital representatives who will be giving out free bicycle helmets. The General Store is donating the backpacks..
The American Legion will be cooking hot dogs and there will be snow cones and cotton candy at no cost. All are welcome to join in the fun and games and pick up some school supplies.
