Educational supplies to be collected at Back to School Bash

August 3, 2013 by  

The community of Six Mile, which is just northwest of Anderson, is gearing up for the Back to School Bash, which takes place later this month. The event is being organized to collect donations of supplies for the Six Mile Elementary School.

Those who come to the Bash are asked to bring a blanket or lawn chair to the park as, in addition to the music and art, there will be bounce houses and other activities for the youngsters. There is no charge but school supplies, such as paper, pencils, folders, marble composition notebooks, three-ring binders, and colored pencils, are suggested as donations for attendance.

The event’s organizers are most likely using flyer and poster printing techniques to ensure the local community and those from surrounding towns are aware of what’s going on. The festival will be focused on the arts, and people are being encouraged to collect as many supplies as possible.

Performers at the festival will include the Sweet Potato Pie Kids, 10 Cent Cotton, Russ Chapman and Mark Webb, Tony Tidwell, the Mount Olivet Wesleyan Church Band, and The Wobblers.

Barbequed foods will be sold at the event by Creekside Bar-Be-Que. The company has also pledged 10 per cent of its profits to the procurement of supplies for the school.

The celebration is set to begin at 2:00pm on August 24 and will continue until the early evening hours. It will be held at Ponderosa Park. Olivet Church will be sponsoring the event with assistance from the town.
