Cornwall Ontario — It is warm and sunny, the perfect weather for a family picnic at Lamoureux Park, and the perfect weather for the 70th Anniversary celebration of the United Way of SD&G on Sunday.
“70 years of service to our communities is amazing!” says Lori Greer, Executive Director “It is reason to celebrate but without our loyal donors, business leaders and local citizens this anniversary would not have been possible”.
Nolan Quinn took a short break from ice cream today. He was apart of The Benson Group that hosted a Benson BBQ. Family and children enjoyed free hot dogs and hamburgers.
There was also a long line up for face painting with Carilyn Hebert. From flowers, to bees, to their favourite super heroes, children had their faces decorated in an assortment of colours and designs.
“The Board of Directors of the United Way of S. D. & G. are thrilled to host this family event as a symbol of our thanks , a day we can all come together to enjoy and celebrate” , said Danny Aikman, United Way Board President.
There was also plenty of games, prizes, and freezie treats. Children tossed bean bags into targets, went fishing, blew bubbles, and even played a life size version of a popular childhood game.
One of the biggest attractions was a large life sized version of the game Jenga. Noella Cotnam of Sign-It Signs helped with the creation of this life sized game.
