Mark your calendars for our annual neighborhood celebration.

Saturday, September 8th, is our annual Barrie Fest, starting at noon. We are planning to have bands, a business/organization fair, bounce houses, the climbing wall, and other entertainment. Our local police and fire department will be there. We’ll have food vendors as well.

We’re still working on the agenda — feel free to email with suggestions.

Stay tuned for more details.

Join us at Culver’s on Tuesday October 24

On Tuesday October 24, SEOPCO will be partnering with Culver’s of Berwyn to raise funds for the Irving PTO Scholarship Fund. A portion of Culver’s profits that afternoon/evening will be donated to the Scholarship Fund.

Join us anytime between 4:00 and 8:00 pm for a delicious Culver’s dinner, and help provide scholarship funds for extracurricular activities.

Just mention the Irving Scholarship Fund either at the drive-though or inside of Culver’s and they will make a contribution.

The kids will have burned off plenty of calories at the Fun Run earlier in the day, so enjoy the Culver’s flavor of the day, Mint Chip. And, you can meet Scoopy, the Culver’s mascot.

Hope you can join us next Tuesday.
