How about going to a big summer birthday party where a gift isn’t even required?
Well, it’s Tuesday, July 12, at 6 p.m. and it is not only the Downey Symphony Guild’s birthday, it’s a luau and a serious barbecue at the Rio Hondo Event Center. All you need to bring is yourself ready for feasting, music and celebration.
Again the Downey Symphony Guild invites the community to join them in support of Music in the Schools and the Downey Symphony Orchestra. It is through the efforts of this time-honored organization that generous donations go out each year to fund music appreciation for our school children and to benefit our excellent orchestra.
Katy Hare of the Guild announces that a giant feast is being planned consisting of four meat choices, fish and four or five salads along with all those good things which accompany the entrees, as well as a birthday cake, of course.
Adding to the light-hearted Hawaiian theme of the evening will be two young ladies from Warren and Downey high schools. The girls, who won first prize in the local talent show, will perform Hawaiian and Polynesian dances and songs.
Come to our summer luau-barbecue-birthday party July 12 for door prizes, leis, good food and tidal waves of fun.
For reservations, please send $20 per adult and $10 for children under 12 on or before July 9 and mail to Downey Symphony Guild, 9700 Garnish Dr., Downey 90240. Questions: (562) 861-8507.
