We All Scream for Ice Cream! Independence Day Social and Children’s Parade


By Tim Louque, Activities Committee Chair

What better was to beat the heat this Independence Day than ice cream?! Join us as we celebrate the founding of our nation at our Annual Ice Cream Social! It all begins at 4:00 PM at Jaycee Park. Neighborhood Realtor, SharonEttinger of Keller William Metropolitan Realty, is once again sponsoring the Timbergrove Manor event. There is no better way to experience family fun this summer than ice cream and independence. The best part? It is the children’s parade of course! We know that it’s a huge deal for children to be in a real parade. So come on kids! Gather up your friends in the neighborhood, decorate your wagons, bicycles, tricycles, strollers, carts and yourself! Show us your spirit of the red white and blue. It is a little known fact that pets also love to show off in the annual parade. They love the attention! There will be prizes for everyone involved!

Baskin Robbins, at 1354 West 43rd Street, will be providing your favorite flavors with the best selection of toppings ever. But have no fear those of you with dairy allergies! You too can beat the heat

this year! We’ll also have watermelon, cut fresh and served ice cold with lemonade and iced tea.

As you know, an Independence Day celebration hosted by the Timbergrove Manor Civic Club is not complete without a fire engine. Children of all ages are welcomed to come out and see a fire engine, climb in, turn the steering wheel, meet firemen, take pictures and learn about firefighting. We’ll also have a balloon artist crafting custom creations on site!

You can still pay your 2017 Membership Dues, get information about area parks, make donations to support them and grab a Timbergrove car decal while you’re at it!
