Concerts in Memorial Park
Submitted By Julie Machado
Just a reminder that Memorial Park Concerts continue through Sunday, October 2.
Hayward Odd Fellows Sycamore Lodge #129 is partnering with H.A.R.D. and
local non-profits for a series of Free Sunday Concerts at the Hayward Memorial Park. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs, a picnic (no alcohol), and enjoy an afternoon in the park with Music, Art, Dance & Chess! Kids of all ages are welcome to come create chalk art! Chess players, bring your chess moves or come to learn!
All activities will be at the Hayward Memorial Park, 24176 Mission Blvd. Program runs from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. and is free to the public. A tot lot is nearby, as is a lovely hiking trail, indoor pool (the Hayward Plunge), tennis courts and plenty of free parking. This magnificent local park is managed by the Hayward Area Parks and Recreation District, the premier agency in the greater Hayward area.
Each event will showcase and feature one of our area's fine 501 c 3 non-profit groups which do much of the heavy lifting in the community. All donations received go to the featured 501 c 3 non-profit of the day and are tax deductible.
The Hayward Odd Fellows Sycamore Lodge #129 was re-formed in 2010 with a focus on supporting music and arts in the community, as well as doing other good work and providing good fellowship. For more about the lodge, see www.haywardlodge.org . The Independent Order of Odd Fellows is a fraternal organization that believes in Friendship, Love and Truth, in making the world a better place, and in supporting their fellows. For more about I.O.O.F, see www.ioof.org . Musicians, artists, dancers and chess masters are all donating their time for these events.
