Back to School Bash set for Aug. 9 in Suwannee County

Live Oak —

The Suwannee Coalition is gearing up for their annual Back to School Bash which is just weeks away. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, Aug. 9, at the Suwannee High School Auditorium. The Bash will take place from 9-11 a.m.

The Bash is a community-wide event which provides free backpacks and school supplies for children in Suwannee County. Hundreds of organizations and individuals come together for this event where students and their parents receive a message of encouragement, free refreshments and, of course, backpacks.

Program Manager Mary Taylor said several organizations have already stepped up to make this year’s event a success.

The Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch will be handling food preparation and serving; Melody Church will be providing the music; and Vivid Visions will be distributing information packets.
