Help Bertha Henschel Survive!

We can't deny kids summer fun like this!

Below is a message from Friends of Bertha Henschel.


Allegra Lampley here (the new leader of Friends of Bertha Henschel).

On Saturday, September 3rd from 1pm to 10 pm, D Street will be closed between 40th and San Antonio for the party of the year!

It’s a musical/BQQ extravaganza and all profits will go to save Bertha Henschel Pool.

There will be a bounce house, water slide, volleyball, live music, eats and beer.

The cost is only $5 a plate (kids free) for all-you-can-eat BBQ by grill master Jon James. It’s a screamin’ deal!

The best part is you’ll get to see two awesome local bands, Dog Party and Prieta. I encourage you to check them out on YouTube.

What's summer without the mushroom?

So please, invite your friends, and cruise on over for a great time.

There will be signs posted on McKinley Blvd. Just follow the sounds of music and laughter and the smell of sizzling burgers…
