Community Night Out was a success, by all accounts. The Community Pool was packed and “Dunk a Cop” vied with the climbing wall for “Most Popular.”
But the Not in Our Town table was popular as well. We gave out about 250 bracelets of different colors with an inspirational word, such as Courage, Hope, Faith, Strength, and Love. We used the wheel from Princeton United Methodist Church, labeled with those colors — “step right up and spin the wheel” and gave out the color of bracelet that luck landed on. With the bracelets went one of our new bookmarks and, sometimes, a yellow handout with more info about Not in Our Town, plus a handout for Cornerstone Community Kitchen, the free meal for all on Wednesdays.
Suggestions for next year? More photos?
