Bookbags full of school supplies will be given away Saturday at a back-to-school event at Memorial Park in Warner Robins.
The free event, put on by the Warner Robins Masonic Lodge No. 207, Prince Hall Affiliate, will be held 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and feature school supplies, bounce houses, a dunking booth and food.
“It’s basically a family fun day,” said Sherdan Crawley, a member of the lodge.
The lodge puts on the annual event as a way to give back to the community. Last year, about 300 people came out, he said.
