Slime Out Type 1 Diabetes
The Elmwood Murdock Elementary School held a fundraiser for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. They raised $900 through the event!
Volunteers needed for the Elmwood stop of the Market to Market Relay Race! From the Market to Market website: "A premier day-long team running relay race that takes runners from Market to Market®. Starting at sun up, seven runners and a van take on diverse and scenic courses as they make their way to the downtown finish shindig before sun down. Combine running in beautiful landscapes, outrageous costumes and memorable van rides with your friends and it all adds up to 1 unforgettable day."
Elmwood is one of the places that is an exchange site for the relay. There will be a lot transport vans dropping off and picking up runners so the team needs to have volunteers in Elmwood to direct traffic to keep it flowing smooth and keep the runners safe. By providing volunteers we will earn a donation from the Market to Market Relay Series for the Elmwood Park!
More Caution Required at the Elmwood Park! If it looks bright and shiny, don't touch it!
Doesn't the Merry Go Round look great!!
My partner in painting this week was Ranelle Rundquist. I'm surprised we got so much painting done with all the talking we were doing!
This is the before picture.
As we painted the Merry Go Round went round and round. It was a challenge.
The benches got a fresh coat of paint, too!
Thanks to my wonderful husband, Vince, for making the stakes and hanging the caution tape. I'm hoping to do a bit more painting this week so we left the caution tape up. Just remember, if it is shiny, don't touch it...you just never know!
