Hayward Odd Fellows Sycamore Lodge #129 is partnering with Hayward Area Parks and Recreation District (HARD) and local non-profit Bands4Bands for a concert at Memorial Park Sunday, August 28. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs, a picnic (no alcohol), and enjoy a day in the park with music, art, dance, and chess! Kids of all ages are welcome to come create chalk art! Chess players are invited to bring your chess moves or come to learn! Enjoy original rock music by Shape Shifters, and Lonesome Locomotive.
