DIRECTIONS TO MEETING PLACE: Batterson Work Station, 43060 Highway 41, Oakhurst

From the south (Fresno, Madera, Oakhurst, North Fork Bass Lake), go 0.6 miles north on Highway 41
past the turn-off to Bass Lake (which is Road 222). At 0.6 miles, turn left from Highway 41
into the US Forest Service Batterson Work Station.

From the north (Yosemite, Fish Camp, etc.): Proceed south on Highway 41, and when you see
Cedar Valley Drive on your left, go another 1.3 miles and turn right into Batterson Work Station.
Once you’ve turned into Batterson, proceed approx. 0.2 miles up the road to a large
parking lot just past a Quonset hut, and turn right into that parking lot.
We will have signs to make it clear. This is a good place to consolidate vehicles, and a
relatively safe place to leave your vehicle if you ride with someone else.
If you get lost or confused, call Joanna or Brenda’s cell phones (above).

Sunday, July 15 at 2:00 P.M.

Performed by our Summer Workshop kids ages 7-14. Disney’s The Aristocats KIDS is
a non-stop thrill ride of feline fun, complete with unbelievable twists and turns.
In the heart of Paris, a kind and eccentric millionairess wills her entire estate to Duchess,
her high-society cat, and her three little kittens. Laughs and adventure ensue as the greedy,
bumbling butler pulls off the ultimate catnap caper. Now it's up to the rough-and-tumble alley cat,
Thomas O'Malley, and his band of swingin' jazz cats to save the day.
