What a wonderful day. Sunshine, warm, not super humid, with a light breeze. So many great smiles on faces, some that were freshly painted by our face painter Lori who is back.
After downing 280 hot dogs and 24 liters of soda, the crowd was ready for their prizes. It’s always great to see so many new faces at our contest.
By the time you read this there will only be three weeks left so get to the contest soon. Sponsors, mark your calendar and join us for the year end celebration Aug. 13 at 6 p.m. at the Horseshoe Pavilion across from the Hackensack American Legion Post 202.
Thank you to our Hot Dog Sponsor this week — Dan Pflugshaupt, realtor (www.lakeplace.com).
There were 105 children who caught and released 211 fish.
