TOWNSEND — The Townsend Community Couples Club will host the lawn party at the Townsend Military Band’s Thursday, June 20, concert on the Townsend Common.
Proceeds from the lawn party will be used to fund the Couples Club sponsorship of a Sunday opening of the Townsend Library, several projects for TEMA, and a new refrigerator for the West Townsend Reading Room as well as supporting other worthwhile community projects.
Couples Club members will cook hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, and sausages with peppers and onions to sell. Fried dough, hot coffee, and cold soda and bottled water will be available for purchase.
A wide selection of home baked goods will be sale.
Children attending the concert may have their face painted, play in a bounce house, have a balloon animal custom made for them, and win prizes by playing a variety of games set up on the Common that evening for their enjoyment, including cornhole and the lollipop tree.
There will a photo booth for selfies.
