LAWTON, OK (KSWO) – Pre-registration for guaranteed supplies at the event requires tickets, which can be picked up at the Patterson Community Center, 4 NE Arlington, July 31st through August 3rd. Tickets will be distributed as supplies last. All citizens wishing to register should have an ID and the children for which they are obtaining school supplies present.
"Having the chance to see the community rally to support one another and watching organizations work together to provide a service are just a few of the reasons I fell in love with Parks and Recreation long before becoming a coordinator," said event organizer Shereyl Grubbs, City of Lawton coordinator.
Free school supplies and back packs will be given away during the Ninth Annual City of Lawton's Parks and Recreation Department Back 2 School Bash from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. August 5th at the Great Plains Coliseum, 920 SW Sheridan Road. On the day of the event, pre-registered parties may enter the coliseum at 9:00 a.m.; others who register on-site may enter at 10:00 a.m.
