Let’s support our local graduates on Saturday, May 30th!
With the Covid-19 pandemic forcing school closures and cancellation of graduations programs, Haw Creek neighbors plan another way to honor our graduates. If you are a 2020 graduate–kindergarten through college–, Haw Creek wants to salute you with a parade of graduates, Saturday, May 30th. Graduates will gather at the ball field parking lots, and the parade will loop through the valley as shown on the map. Neighbors cheer on the passing graduates from their yards!
Plan to decorate your vehicle with the name and school from which you graduated. Creativity encouraged! With a licensed driver, your vehicle can join the parade loop and participate. Queue your car at 11:30 in the Haw Creek baseball parking lots (Bell Road and New Haw Creek Road). Parade starts at noon!
Haw Creek Neighbors:
Cheer on our graduates for this important milestone, while practicing social distancing. Stake out a spot along the parade route. Bring your camp chair or watch from your vehicle window. Most importantly, your presence will show support for our young people. Make a poster or sign of support. Creativity encouraged!
Come on out for the Gypsy Queen Cuisine food truck on Saturday from 4 – 7 PM. at the Haw Creek Commons!
There are a variety of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern specialties with yummy choices for both meat eaters and vegetarians. Take a look at the menu – and you are encouraged to order ahead STARTING AT NOON SATURDAY.
Haw Creek Neighbors: Come on out for the bright green WICKED SMOKE BBQ truck that’ll roll in this Saturday for our weekly “Night off from Cooking” event! The truck will be set up and ready to serve mouth watering BBQ choices (see menu) from 4 – 7 PM in the parking lot of the HAW CREEK COMMONS at 315 Old Haw Creek Road (corner of Old Haw Creek and Bethesda).
For easy online ordering ahead, this link to the Wicked Smoke ONLINE STORE https://wickedsmokebbqco.square.site/ will be activated as of Friday morning. You can place your order from home all day Friday, and on Saturday before 3 PM. You can pay on line and arrange your pick-up time so your order will be ready. Or just walk, bike, or drive on over and socialize with some of your neighbors, keeping social distancing in mind … and please wear your mask. The truck owners discourage cash – so please use credit or debit cards. Also, from Wicked Smoke: “Please tell your folks that the order link will list our business address as pickup point, but to ignore that and come to the truck in Haw Creek. We can’t change it on the web site”….
The weather forecast looks great for Saturday, and we hope the Haw Creek bears won’t be lured in by the good BBQ smells!
