Spring Break is just around the corner, folks. What are you going to do to entertain the grandkids over Spring Break this year? It’s always a challenge to plan things for them if you have them the entire week while parents are working; especially if you are dealing with multiple ages. We don’t have to go far from home to find fun activities. A trip to Chisholm Park offers fishing,the ducks and other birds, a hiking trail, great playground equipment, and lots of open space to play Frisbee, catch, etc. If they are lucky and catch a fish you can use one of the outdoor grills to prepare lunch or dinner. If they aren’t, and you are so inclined, you can grill hot dogs or hamburgers while the grandkids are playing on the playground equipment nearby. Afterwards the cooled down coals are perfect for some S’Mores. One of the best Spring Break activities the kids always look forward to is the Grand Family Picnic in the park in front of HSAC. The last couple of years In-and-Out Burger has donated free box lunches which is a special treat for everyone who gets there early enough to receive one. Inflatable slides, a bounce house, a picnic lunch, being able to run around outdoors with other kiddos, a free cupcake, and musical entertainment are all available. One great thing about this event is it is fun for all ages. If your grandkids are now grown up you can still attend and enjoy watching all the youngsters running around, or just sitting visiting with your HSAC friends while you wait for this year’s entertainment to begin. This year’s entertainment, Satellite, a modern party band, promises to be very special. Be sure to mark March 11, 2020 on your calendar now so you don’t miss this exciting Annual Event.
