Planning under way for Community Summerfest
That is the theme of the event that will be held Sunday, July 22, at Weyauwega Community Park.
"It's all about giving back. We try to have something for everyone," said Mary Jane Baehman, who is a member of the planning committee.
Community Summerfest will kick off at 10 a.m. with a polka Mass.
That will be followed by a military tribute and pig roast.
The pig roast dinner will begin at 11 a.m. and will be served until it runs out.
Tickets for the dinner are $10 and can be purchased in advance at Ss. Peter & Paul Catholic Church's office, First National Bank in Weyauwega, M&I Bank in Weyauwega and at various other businesses in the community.
People will also be able to purchase dinner tickets on the day of the event for the same price.
Community Summerfest will have activities for people of ages.
Adults may participate in horseshoe and Chicago-style dart tournaments. Both are scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. that day.
It is recommended that those who want to participate in either tournament register ahead of time.
To sign up for the horseshoe tournament, call 920-407-1775, and to sign up for the dart tournament, call 215-630-6750.
The Little Red Schoolhouse Museum will be open with a trunk show set for 1:15 p.m. and 3:15 p.m. Bingo will begin at 1 p.m.
This year, there will also be an expanded children's area.
Baehman said the fun park area will include inflatables, a water blaster and mini golf.
KD's IGA is sponsoring it from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets will be 50 cents, or for $4, a wristband can be purchased.
There will also be free games for children and prizes.
Children will also be able to participate in Punt, Pass & Kick and soccer contests and visit with "Hubert the Lion."
Four bikes will be given away that afternoon - at 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m.
Cildren will need to be in attendance at the time a name is drawn in order to win.
Community Summerfest will include entertainment by the Mel Abright Polka Band and Danny Darrin & the Drifters Band.
There will be a battle of the bands, a bake sale, raffle, a silent auction and lots of food and refreshments. Bidding for the silent auction will end at 4 p.m.
Country Pride 4-H Club will sell root beer floats.
In addition, the Community Blood Center will host a blood drive from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Baehman said the proceeds from Community Summerfest will benefit St. Vincent de Paul, Weymont Food Pantry, Weyauwega-Fremont Christmas Giving Tree and Project Backpack.
Participating non-profit organizations will keep the funds that they themselves raise, she said.
She said other options in the park that day will include the swimming pool, playground equipment and the walking trail
