camping in Crispus Attucks Park -- Saturday, May 22, 2010

See this announcement from Bloomingdale resident Mike Giordano:

Calling all Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Campfire Children - Young and Old!

Perhaps you`ve heard the news...we`re going to be Camping in Crispus Attucks. All you need to do is pitch your tent, donate $20 (if you have it), sign a release, and enjoy! It`s open to all, single folks and families.

We`re camping on Saturday, May 22nd, after the Bloomingdale Community Yard Sale. We`ll begin pitching tents around 5 pm. (Our rain date is Saturday, May 29th.) A police officer will be with us throughout the night - protecting from ghosts and other spirits that might be attracted by our campfire ghost stories.

We`ll be starting quiet time around 10:30, so we won`t bother our neighbors surrounding the park. We`ll also have a portable toilet for our convenience - hence the $20 donation. Any money collected above our expenses will be donated to the park.

To register, you need to email or call Mike Giordano, a neighbor at 129 U Street NW. Mike.Giordano.MSW@gmail.com or 202/ 234-5178. We have space for approximately 20 tents, so first come - first served.

We`ll collect the money and have you sign the release during set-up.

And if you don`t want to camp with us, you`re welcome to join us for campfire sing-a-longs and ghost stories.

And whether or not your attending, perhaps you`d let us borrow the following: portable firepits, fire extinguishers.

Thanks! Looking forward to spending the night with you.
