Saturday, October 31, 2009

The Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Senior Center will hold its annual Holiday Bazaar on Friday, November 6, and Saturday, November 7, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in their center south of the Shoreline Conference Center at 18520 1st Ave South. Vendors will display holiday items for sale, volunteers will sell food, and the regular gift shop will be open.


It's not WWI - it's a Park!

Cromwell Park is under construction. The contractor has scraped off the top layer of soil and rebuilding will soon begin.

Plans include swales for on-site retention of excess water. The park is located just south of the Courthouse at about 180th and Aurora.

According to the Shoreline department of parks & recreation, "the renewed park will include an irrigated field, new basketball court, wetland areas, new play equipment as well as an amphitheater and stage area."

Detailed information is available at the City website under Parks & Recreation, Cromwell Park Improvements.


Record Crowds at Halloween Carnival

Record crowds took advantage of the good weather to enjoy Halloween at the Richmond Beach Community Association's 23rd annual Halloween Carnival on Saturday, October 31st at Syre Elementary school.

The costumed crowd slid down the slightly damp inflatable slide, jumped in the bouncy castle, and tried all of the sixteen game booths. Brave souls dared the Haunted House and the sugar-deprived enjoyed the cake walk and concessions.

Cody Carpp watches his bowling ball go down the alley, while brother Trevor waits his turn. The boys are assisted by their parents, Austin and Kindle Carpp, and King's high school volunteer Ashley Lockridge.

Sheri Ashleman, RBCA board member, says "the Halloween Carnival is one of Richmond Beach’s largest community-building events. It cultivates connections between the adults in our community and youth, gets residents involved in their community, and provides an opportunity for high school students to learn the value of giving back to their community while earning service hours for school."

Volunteer Valerie Speed takes a break from handing out prizes at the bean bag toss at the annual RBCA Halloween Carnival.

Sheri Ashleman points out that "the carnival is a tradition that holds our community together and promotes a sense of identity and a feeling of belonging. Over 150 people volunteer to make the carnival happen, showing that our community values this event for the positive feelings it creates."
