Dependence Day

Celebrating 200 years of British oppression!!

It’s that time of the year when we celebrate treason!! (Just kidding, we do not celebrate treason or oppression of any kind at CTK, but we thoroughly enjoy the sarcasm.)

The annual CTK Dependence Day Party at the Colvins will be Wednesday, July 3rd. Come at 3:00 if you want to fish and swim. Food will be ready by 5-6 pm.

Some of the games will include:

  • Pig races (dont worry, they are not real)
  • Potato sack
  • Giant checkers
  • Bean bag toss
  • Coin toss
  • Small prizes

We may have the fire truck come over and spray the kiddos

When: Wednesday July 3rd, rain or shine.

  • 3:00 - Fishing & Swimming in Shoal Creek
  • 5:00-6:00 - Food will be served and eaten 
  • 7:00 - daylight fireworks for the kids 
  • Dusk/dark fireworks for everyone 

Dress comfortably and bring swim suits if you are planning to use the creek beach.  Bring a change of clothes and towels and enjoy a splash while we cook.

Food: We will provide hot dogs, hamburgers and quite possibly some beef or pork.  Bring side dishes and deserts.

Drink: There will be water, lemonade, tea, and some sodas.  Bring your own if you choose to.

Alcohol: Consumption within biblical parameters is allowed, BYOB.

Seating: Bring lawn chairs, blankets, insect repellant, sun screen,  essential oils, what have you,  space suits, bee suits, whatnot.

Safety: Please leave the ramp for those who need it. Stay out of the areas with caution tape, including under the house.

Parking: will be on the west of the field

Fireworks: Bring fireworks and we'll shoot them off together. You can even bring fireworks and let others shoot them off. In all, this tends to be amazing and just a touch anarchic. 

Fishing: please be sure to pick up as much fishing line as you can if you get snagged.  Please bring your own fishing gear.  Fishing  area will be behind the house into Thurman branch.

Music: We will play some pandora radio music but would absolutely love if you can bring your instruments and play and sing at your liking.  There will be electricity downstairs for your equipment.

Shooting: Sorry, no shooting this year
