WALKING CLUB NEWS FOR FLYING PIG MILE

Hello to the members of Pig Pen D (4th wave) for Saturday's 26th Mile event!

Here is what you need to know:

  • The 26th Mile will start at the corner of Joe Nuxhall Way and 2nd Street.
  • You should plan on being there by 11:30.  Look for the Clough Pike Walking Club sign.
  • Pig Pens will be marked by large colored vertical "feather" banners and they are positioned along Joe Nuxhall Way from the start line and back southward toward river
  • Pig Pen D banners are orange.
  • We will also have Volunteers holding a sign with wave letter at the front and back of each wave, along with the groups assigned to that wave. Pig Pen A banners are black. Our announcer will also be telling the crowd who is to be in what Pig Pen.
  • Start time is 12 noon, following the National Anthem performed by our intern Imani Rogers. She has quite a terrific voice, so have your kids sing along with her!
  • Waves will be started every 8 minutes so that the finish "swine" moves smoothly and safely. We will shorten the intervals only if the finish line authorities give us the "all clear." Please have patience as we process everyone safely and smoothly.
  • Participants will be directed to "chutes" after they cross the finish and channeled along to get their goodies and medals. They exit at Mehring Way close to where the big red Paddle Wheel Monument is.
  • Stroller wheels can be a hazard to little runners' legs, so please, if anyone is on the course with a stroller we ask that you be very cautious of those around you and stay to the side.

Have a good plan on where your group should meet both before and after. And then enjoy your day and have fun!

ROCK THE MALL CONCERT

Dear West Clermont Community,

I am extremely pleased to announce more details about the spring concert. I shared with various groups that I would be doing a spring concert but I kept things very basic. I have been able to confirm details and I am pleased to say that Willowville, Summerside, Merwin and Clough Pike Elementary Schools will be performing at Eastgate Mall. Each of the schools will have a date and time for their concert. This is being called Rock The Mall Concert Series and will feature performances by the 4th and 5th Choruses of the previously mentioned schools. Also, my after school club The School of Rock will be performing four songs.
