Angelo RC Field Day!
Saturday, October 6th, 9:00am!
Our September 22nd Field Day has been postponed to October 6th, due how fast the grass and weeds are growing due to our abundant rainfall. Jim Fogleman and Jimmy Gaona have bee working during the week to keep the weeds sprayed and the growth trimmed for now! Our new date is October 6th at 9am.
We will be cutting the grass, emptying the trash and cleaning the area. So bring your work gloves, rakes & weed eaters if you have them. Usually, it takes about one to two hours to complete the work depending on the number of volunteers, however, any time you can spare is appreciated. Hope to see you then! Contact Jimmy Gaona at 214-641-1143 if you have any questions.
