PUMC Working Ticket Booths at NC State Fair
Where has the year gone? Just can’t believe that it is time to sign up to work at the N.C. State Fair, which will be held on October 11 – 21, 2012. This is the largest fundraiser for our church and we can’t be successful without everyone’s help. The amount of money that we earn is calculated on the number of slots we fill! As in past years, there will be numerous slots available for each of the 11 fun-filled days! We will carpool from the parking lot each morning and afternoon. Sign-up sheets are posted in the hallway. We are asking that you go ahead and schedule the days and/or nights that you can work. We need to fill as many slots early in order to communicate the schedule with Creedmoor United Methodist Church. If you have any questions, please contact Janice and Roger Jarrell.
Celebrate the 4th of July in Parkwood!
Parkwood’s annual Independence Day Celebration and Grand Bike Parade will take place on Wednesday, July 4th, from 9:00 am to noon.
Thanks to the leadership of the Parkwood United Methodist Men and a growing list of other community groups, many of the old favorites will be there again: The Moonwalk, Parkwood Volunteer Fire Department’s Snoopy the Fire Dog, and the traditional Bicycle Decoration and Parade. New features include a Dunking Booth, with local celebrities and volunteers taking turns in the dunking seat. There will be field games including volleyball, cornhole, and sack races.
Children can bring their bicycles to the Revere Road Parking lot by 9:30 am to decorate before the 10:30 am parade. Balloons and decorations will be provided. The Grand Bicycle Parade will process through a course in the parking lot.
Parking for this event will be limited, so if you live nearby you may want to walk. Others may be able to find available parking on nearby side streets.
