Spruce Creek 2008 Children Olympic Summer Bash to be held June 21

Spruce Creek Children Summer BashSPRUCE CREEK - The Spruce Creek Children and Recreation Committee has organized this year's Big Summer Bash event for the children of Spruce Creek to be held on Saturday, June 21 at the Spruce Creek Fly-in children's playground. The event will start at 10:00 am and is scheduled to go on until 1:00 pm.

The event's theme for this year is the Olympics, and activities planned include a variety of games for kids of all ages to compete in. From sac races to egg relays and tug-of-war, to jousting matches and a bungee run. There will also be water games to cool off in two water slides. So bring your swim suits and towels!

As always, hot dogs and refreshments will be available.

The Summer Bash is one of the many children activities organized each year by the Spruce Creek Children's Recreation Committee. The Committee is managed by volunteer residents of the Spruce Creek Fly-in. The mission of the Committee is to provide safe, fun and healthy activities and opportunities for the children and families of the Spruce Creek Fly-in community.

Funding for the activities is provided by the residents of Spruce Creek and donations from local businesses. Other activities held throughout the year include the Annual Easter Egg Hunt, Family Movie Night, and Breakfast with Santa. Additional children's events are organized in conjunction with the famous Spruce Creek festivals: Wings and Wheels, the Annual Bonfire, and the Toy Parade.

SOS Campaign

Please bring your aluminum cans and box tops to support the Committee's S.O.S. campaign to help Volusia County Schools.

As quoted by Krista Ghaffarian, Chairman of the Children's and Recreation Committee:

Collect as many aluminum cans as you can. For example, rather than recycle your cans at home, put them in a trash bag or box and bring them on the 21st. Be resourceful; collect cans at parties or your workplace. Encourage your kids to be creative because there are aluminum cans everywhere. Each pound of aluminum is worth approximately 50 cents.

Collect as many Box Top coupons as you can. Look on products you already purchase everyday like cereal boxes and paper products and cut off the Box Top. Keep them in a safe place and bring them on the 21st. Again, be creative; get your neighbors and friends involved. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents for the schools. We all have valuable money for our schools already sitting in our cupboards. Whatever we collect on the 21st will be donated back to the schools.
