Mason Optimist Youth Sports Day Event June 11th
Organized by: gary rogers
The Mason Optimist Club, "Friend of Youth" to the children of mid-Michigan for over 40 years is hosting its 9th Annual Youth Sports Day Event on June 11th, 2016 at Burchfield County Park in Ingham County. The Club expects 400+ kids and their parents/grand parents at the event. All are admitted free except for the nominal car fee charged by the park. This is a fun filled day of trout fishing, kayaking, archery, air rifle target shooting, disc golf, swimming, hiking (at the 540 acre park)along with many volunteer vendors demonstrating everything from dog training to lure making. The Club provides a free lunch for all the children along with a free t-shirt and numerous free prizes ranging from the grand prize kayak to fishing lures. Naturally, this event takes a lot of time, planning, energy, commitment and money to make it happen. Everyone is a volunteer that works the event....we provide the planning, energy, and commitment but we need help with the financial aspects of the event. Sponsor levels range from $25 and above but any financial help is appreciated. This whole event is about getting children outside and away from their electronic games, get some exercise and have some fun!! Financial help: Checks should be made payable to Mason Optimist Club, and sent to Mason Optimist Club, P.O. Box 287, Mason MI 48854. Check the Club out at www.facebook.com/MasonOptimistClub. Thanks for your consideration of this charitable event.
