WinterFest 2019 was another huge success! Special thanks to Gerda Pitcher for coordinating this event and gathering up volunteers to assist her. We had a record turnout and Mother Nature cooperated by gifting us with a beautiful, sunny, winter day.
Those who attended had a great time catching up with their friends and neighbors from Sandy Pines. The food was awesome. We had hot dogs with all the fixins’, chips, homemade cookies, popcorn and a delicious hot cocoa bar.
Many of attendees brought their sleds and had a blast going down the hill. Dan VandenBerg, from our Maintenance Department, manned the tractor and gave wagon rides to those who wanted one. The wagon was full almost each time they went out. A couple of our Public Safety Officers joined in the fun to mingle with the kids and adults, alike, and everyone appeared to have a great time.
Some of the activities included Bingo, various crafts, bottle toss, Jenga, ping pong bounce and outdoor bowling. There was also a Bonfire where marshmallows were toasted and enjoyed.
Thank you to all of the volunteers who shared their time to help make this event a success. Please watch for information on next year’s event and take the time to volunteer. We could have used more volunteers this year so that more activities could have been presented for the kids. Thank you, in advance, for your consideration.
