The New Orleans Recreation Development Commission (NORDC) will host two Back to School Fall Expos on Saturday, August 13, where families can learn more about NORDC Fall programming, activities and upcoming events such as Athletics, Youth and Teen Programs, Fitness, Dance, Arts, and more. The Fall Expo for the Uptown area will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lyons Recreation Center, 624 Louisiana Avenue, and it is free and open to the public.
The expos will also feature a School Supply Giveaway, in partnership with several organizations, to help families kick off the new school year. Parents must attend the Expo with their children to participate in the School Supply Giveaway. Anyone interested in donating new and used school supplies to be given away at the Expo may drop them off at any NORDC facility or public library.
Several partnering organizations will be at the Expo to register individuals for other Fall Programs hosted at NORDC sites. Additionally, the New Orleans Public Library, Urban League of New Orleans, COX, Creole Cuisine and others will be onsite to provide information and resources about the services they offer to the community. Food and refreshments will be provided by Creole Cuisine.
The other Fall Expo on Saturday will take place at Stallings St. Claude Recreation Center, located at 4300 St. Claude Avenue, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
