Walker Day Wrap-up
We had a very successful second year “return of Walker Day”. Over 400 Walker residents, friend and Prescott area visitors turned out to join in the festivities. The fun included live music courtesy of “Guys with day jobs”, a huge community yard sale, games for the kids, (including a bouncy castle), a beautiful silent auction and our traditional, old fashion cake walk.
The live Rock and Roll music was once again a gift from, (mostly area residence), “guys with day jobs”. The yard sale was the biggest I’ve ever seen. Hundred and hundreds of items were donated by the community. The silent auction featured items like beautiful gift baskets filled with donated gift cards from restaurants and retailers and even a pair of sterling silver candelabras. We had over 20 cakes donated for the calk walk and awarded throughout the day to the lucky winners. What fun!
My sincere thanks go out to the dozens of community members that step up each year to help pull off this great event. Special thanks to Laura MacQuen (silent auction), Jean Lupa and Timi Reed (yard sale), Charlie Hyman and Russ Courtney (set up to tear down), Bill loughrige and his team (grill masters), Ellen Odart (kids games), Chief Roger, numerous firefighters… and to all those I missed. Also, behind the scenes are always generous donors like Gene Tomek (all the food) and the Walker Community Church (all the water).
On top of all the fun, we raised about $5000 profit from Walker Day, received numerous additional contributions and made some great new community friends.
I hope to see you all at next years Walker Day, (no excuses!), and I hope you can all come to this years firefighter appreciation day/pig roast on October, 5th from 4-6pm.
