Lunches will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Ladd Park, 500 Coventry Lane in Crystal Lake. Fun activities will be provided and no registration is required.

The lunch program will be offered on weekdays beginning Tuesday, June 6th and running through Thursday, August 18th. In case of rain, lunches will be served at Vineyard Church, 7105 Virginia Road in Crystal Lake (next to the CVS).
