Norfolk Community Day Set for June 15

The Norfolk Lions, in conjunction with local organizations, are in the final planning stages for the town’s annual Community Day, to be held on Saturday, June 15 at the Holmes Bus complex at 22 Myrtle Street in Norfolk. Community Day events start at 11 a.m. There is a $5 donation for parking.
Events at this year’s Community Day celebration include a children’s art contest, touch-a-truck, Tom Antonellis’ bird houses, golf ball drop 50/50 raffle, as well as many new and old favorite amusements, including a sports obstacle course, Batter Up, Mega Slide, Wipe Out and Frozen Combo.
The blacktop entertainment will include several local groups who have participated for the last 25 years, including Band Together--More Than a Music School, and Exhale Dance Performance.
This year’s schedule of events:
On the Main Stage: Band Together-More Than a Music School (11 a.m.); Lions Talent Show Winners (noon); Exhale A School of Dance (12:15 p.m.); kids’ games & contests--musical chairs & balloon toss (1 p.m.); pie eating contest & golf ball drop (2 p.m.); and High Flying Dogs (2:30 p.m.).
In addition, there will be an animal petting zoo; musical entertainment, including the Good Tymes Banjo Band and Loud Steel Band; Megalodon Tooth Hunt; GOFI Dogs Kissing Booth; airbrush tattoos; antique fire engine, hay wagon, and train rides; a caricaturist; and foam fun with the Norfolk Fire Department.
All the food and fun are sponsored by various local groups, many of which are selling goodies to raise funds and providing literature about their organizations. 
In addition, the Lions will be collecting donations for the food pantry since food pantry supplies are at their lowest during the summer months. Some items that are currently needed are cereal, soup, coffee, snacks (especially those for children), juice, pasta sauce, tuna, and baked beans. 
The Norfolk Lions could not undertake this fun event without the widespread assistance of all those who volunteer their funds, materials, and time.  The Lions would like to thank the Norfolk Fire, Police, and Highway Departments and the Norfolk Recreation Department for their ongoing support. The event is also made possible with the help of other community organizations such as the Emmanuel Baptist Church, KP Leos, KP Cares, DECA, and various volunteer groups.
