On Wednesday, July 4 we will be dropping ping pong balls for children up to age 12. I am hoping each child will be able to collect 5 ping pong balls this year.
Still looking for about 200 items to hand out (small prizes, gift certificates, etc.)
I do have some extra items on hand, but I would rather see the children (and their families) have to visit your store or restaurant with a coupon for a free ice cream, or $ off their purchase. Or some businesses purchase a dozen small toys or a bunch of candy bars and the child will get a certificate that says they need to come to your business to collect their prize. I can even make these certificates for you.
I am counting the ping pong balls tomorrow and getting them sorted and ready to be dropped on the Fourth. Let me know if I should include some for you.
This Saturday (June 22) is the Picnic at the Inlet Common School from 1:00-3:00 p.m. I do hope many of you take a minute to stop by.
Our first summer concert will be Tom O'Carroll on Saturday, June 29 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at Arrowhead Lakefront.
The Ping Pong Ball Drop takes place at 1:00 p.m. at Fern Park on July 4th. (Looking for prizes!) Live music by Jamie Notarthomas on Arrowhead Lakefront starts at 7:30 p.m. the same day, followed by fireworks over Fourth Lake at dusk.
July 6 will be Annie & the Hedonists at Arrowhead Lakefront from 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Flyers for each are attached. Please print, hang and share!
Black Fly Challenge (Saturday, June 8 with the Post-Race Party starting at noon in Fern Park) - Thank you to all who showed up to stuff the bags last night!
I failed to take attendance, but I counted almost 40 people in the Senior Room at Inlet Town Hall and almost all of them followed us to Screamen Eagle for food and beverages. Always a great turnout for this activity. We should have more events that need 1,000 bags stuffed. Ha!
If you are singed up to work Friday or Saturday, and I did not give you a shirt yet, you can stop by my office. I will be there the next three days from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
I am going to try to reach out to everyone today to make sure we are all set with who is going to be where. If you do not hear from me and have a question, just let me know.
Looking forward to a great event on Saturday! Thank you for being a part of the Adirondacks' Greatest Race!
