Plan to join us Saturday, September 23 for CommUNITY Fest 2017. The event includes United We Can, a food sculpture competition, free kids’ activities, music and photo ops with your favorite costumed characters and mascots. All free, family friendly activities are intermingled with the sculptures in the Expo Building. Help select the “People’s Choice” award winning sculpture by bringing a canned food item or cash. You’ll receive one vote per item or $1 donated. It’s a free, fun event that has something for everyone in the family.
CommUNITY Fest 2016 total food donations came to over 12,150 pounds, with cash donations of more than $2,000.
Does your company, service club or non-profit organization want to be part of the fun? There are several ways for you to participate.
United We Can – create a team to build a food sculpture with non-perishable food and other basic needs items. It’s a great team building opportunity and all food items will help fill the shelves at local pantries. Check out some photos from the 2016 competition or watch a video from the event, including some time lapse videos of sculptures under construction. Then, register your team.
Kids’ Activities – local groups provide everything from crafts and face painting to obstacle courses and games. If your group would like to provide a kids’ activity, register by August 31 and check out the information for providing kids’ activities. If you still have questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Costumed Mascots – does your business, school or group have a mascot? We would love to have them join us for all or part of the day. Contact Sue Haupt for more information.
