The theme of that downtown party will be “We Remember,” and will feature Ghee Johnson singing the National Anthem at the War Memorial stage, followed by a moment of silence as SP recalls the terrorists attacks on New York and Washington on September 11, 2001.
Then the party will start and the theme will have as a subhead, “Old Fashioned Fun,” to be highlighted by a horseshoe tournament chaired by Jerry Weindel, hula hoop fun, a bouncer room, and a car, truck, motorcycle and tractor cruise-in. Period costumes are welcome! SPHS student Cheyenne McKenna will provide music with his DJ equipment.
After the September event was put down on paper, the committee turned its attention to the November and December Night Out events, and then spread out even further to encompass other community events, such as the city wide Fall Litter Sweep, which is set for September 25, a clean-up that will be chaired by SPHS FFA president Jackie Cuneo.
The group also discussed working before, during and after the Christmas Parade, and also stated its intention to insure a good Christmas House Tour, planned for Sunday, December 12.
The group then discussed its role in the Town of St. Pauls’ annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony, which will be held on Friday, November 29 downtown.
The Night Out event will be wrapped around this Christmas kick-off event, and could include a Community Choir singing carols.
So it is easy to see that the Night Out committee has moved well beyond the monthly events to other community based and inclusive activities, all designed to improve the quality of life here and make this community a community in every sense of the word.
To enter the horseshoe tournament, get your two person horseshoe team together and call Jerry Weindel at Superior Industrial Flooring at 865-6565.
