Just a reminder that this Saturday is RU12?'s first annual Family Program Picnic Potluck and Field Day Event!
The weather is slated to be beautiful (77 degrees and sunny--don't forget your sunscreen!)
We are still looking for a few volunteers to run the children's events (list below). If you have any interest in helping out (10am-4pm), email [email protected] or call the Center at 802.860.7812.
Tentative list of kids' events will include Balloon Pop, Hula Hoop Marathon, Water Balloon Toss, Tug o' War, Beach Ball Race, Soda Bottle Bowling, Egg on Spoon race, Egg Toss, Long Jump, Face Painting, Toe-Marble Grab, Sponge Relay, Red Light Green Light, Rest/Relaxation Station and an all-participant Scavenger Hunt! Mini-awards and prizes will be offered at the end of the day.
Event will take place at Hubbard Park's Old Shelter (by the soccer field). Plenty of nearby parking, as well as outhouse facilities (no running water). Click here for a map of the park.
Directions from 89: Go R on State Street from the highway to Elm Street. Take a L on Elm until Winter Street. Go L on Winter Street to the junction of Parkway Street/Parkway Avenue. Follow Parkway Street into the park and look for signs for parking. (~1000 feet past the frog pond is a R-turn towards the Old Shelter where the event will take place.)
Things to bring:
- Suggested donation of $10/family for RU12?'s Family Program (to defray the cost of the event and raise funds for future endeavors), but no one will be turned away for lack of donation.
- A dish to share
- Non-alcoholic beverages for you and yours
- Picnic blankets
- Overlayer in case it gets cold
- Change of clothes/shoes in case of getting eggy (egg toss, egg on spoon) or wet (water balloon toss)
For more info on any of the above, please contact [email protected].
