We are so excited for another fun-filled summer! We’ve been working hard to secure some fun and different events for everyone to attend this summer. Our schedule is officially out, you can check it out here.
Also, keep in mind things do change! Keep checking back for updated information!
This year we have some new events, as well as some repeats!
Of course, the big event – the Annual Fun Run! It is back and better than ever! Join us this year on the Fourth of July for a Cuchara tradition. You can start sending in registration forms now or sign up on race day at 8 am! The run will begin at 8:30 am at the Community Center. This year we will be switching up our racecourse slightly! Instead of having our participants run on highway 12 for a few feet, we will redirect them through the (somewhat) new path between the Community Center and River Lane. Also, please note, this year we have a small price change for registration! To learn more about the Annual Fourth of July Fun Run, please click here.
Also, don’t forget about the Cuchara Parade and our Fourth of July Bingo to round out your Fourth of July Festivities!
The Kids Quilting Workshop is back! (7/2-3) This workshop has been happening for many years thanks to the generous volunteers that put this on for our children. This activity has grown each year and is a testament to the wonderful service this program gives to our summer community. Learn more here!
This year we are heading back to Mission Wolf & Bishops Castle! (7/9) Join us for this all day adventure. A good portion of this trip will be in the car but stops at Bishops Castle, Mission Wolf, and other various spots for picnics and scenery make this day a full and memorable one!
