Families in Parking Lot

Please take care to not block the parking area for the buses.  Also, please do not park on the grass area since we don’t want the grass being destroyed.  We are noticing a lot of congestion. If there is no parking spot, please park at Nester’s mall or Save On Foods mall. We appreciate your thoughtfulness and patience.
