The Community Cookout and Celebration held at Winthrop Park on Monday, August 22, 2011 was a spirited success with well over 500 people attending.  Everyone, especially the younguns' were excited, energetic, talkative, watching and reaching out to friends and strangers.

Winthrop Park is well laid out to handle simultaneous activities and that is exactly how the organizers set up the event.  All of it contributed to feeling of celebration, ease of movement and sense of relaxation and enjoyment.   You had your choice:
  • Walk around and visit the many vendor tables
  • Play basketball
  • Wait in line for food
  • Indulge at the ice cream vendor
  • Sit at picnic tables with your family
  • Watch the kids on stage dancing
  • Marvel at the karate performances
There couldn't have been a better way to bid the summer farewell and welcome the beginning of a new school year. 

Were the kids excited?  You bet!  Touch 106.1 FM handled the music stage and got the kids involved, answering questions, shouting with enthusiasm and dancing on stage.
