Some of the great prizes for winners include: Studier Kart Racing passes (family of 4), free professional photo session and 8×10 print, a free oil change from Hutcheson Automotive, Premier Jewelry, a roadside hazard kit, and more.
We had hotdogs, tea, and lemonade and we enjoyed affordably priced sodas, chips, popcorn, and candy available at our concession stand.
We also roasted marshmallows around our new fire pit!
The playground and fire pit are dedicated in memory of Wilmer Ray Nease, Louise Nease Kessler, Neil Morgan, Sarah Hamaker and Wayne Wright. There were many others who donated funds and hands-on labor to make this project a reality. We acknowledged them, as well. Our thanks goes out to Gloria Sheppard who has organized and worked so hard to accomplish this.
