A Community Event -- A Day in the Park. July 15, 2017

July 15th from 8:30 am- 12:30 pm

Day in the Park (Steve Selfridge),

Memorial Park, Rapid City, SD

Setup at 8:30; event runs from 9:30

to 12:30 pm

Attendees (15):  Harley Schmadeke, Ken Maron, Rick Weisbeck, Al Oines, Julian Wigen, Ralph Brethauer, Frank DiCesare, Ed Pike, Bel Felix, Danny Green, Paul Douglas, Jerry Nordine, Bob and Kathie Buchanan, and Lon Gose.

An enjoyable day at the park today - kids colored over 85 vans, and we put wheels on them.  The shade was great, the crowds were smaller than previous visits, but the addition of the race track made the event a big hit for kids! 

Our booth featured Woodworking for Kids:  We brought blank unfinished wooden toy vans for kids to color with crayons.  When the kids were finished coloring, we installed wheels on each toy.  We brought blank vans, wheels, axles, and glue, wheel presses, jigs and crayons.  Danny Green brought the 3-track racer for the kids to test out their cars after coloring.
