Marquette – August 17, 2013 – Silver Creek Neighborhood Block Party by Kevin Taylor
The Block Party began 5 years ago when Silver Creek Church had a dream of helping people from to community to get to know one another. The event quickly took on a Back-To-School them. Now, local business, services clubs and neighbors have joined Silver Creek Church in sponsoring the event.
This year we hope to give away 500 backpacks, school supplies and 5,000 pieces of children’s clothing to families who need them.
There will be food, carnival games, bounce houses and slides, pony rides, stage shows for the whole family, live music by 41 West playing Christian songs on a Wenger Stage and much, much more.
The event will be Saturday, August 17th and will begin at noon with backpack, school supplies and clothing distribution and will run until 5 p.m. Various non-profit agencies and community organizations will be there to connect with community members. There is absolutely no cost! Just bring the family and have a great time getting to know your neighbors.
Our featured organization is this year is the Care Clinic. We are accepting donations of baby items on their behalf. For more information you can go to silvercreekblockparty.org or you can call Silver Creek Church at (906) 249-1715.
