LV2With Memorial Day comes the ceremonial kickoff for the summer season.

The City of Laguna Vista will mark the season with the observance of the third annual Mayor’s Challenge and Health Fair, and a July 4 community picnic, as well as other regular municipal meetings and events.

June 3 marks graduation day and the final day of classes for students in the Point Isabel Independent School District.

The Mayor’s Challenge summer nutrition program for children will be celebrated with a community health fair and march on June 4. School-age youth in Laguna Vista can receive free meals this summer through a partnership between the Town and the Point Isabel Independent School District.

Funded through the Texas Department of Agriculture’s Summer Nutrition Programs, the initiative created a Mayors Challenge for all communities to help raise awareness in working to provide healthy free meals to children during the summer months.

The program will kick-off on Saturday, June 4 at 2 p.m. at Roloff Park in Laguna Vista. A health fair, parade, children’s activities and refreshments are planned. Meals will be provided Monday through Fridays and is free to all children in the Point Isabel Independent School District.
