A huge thanks to the Farmers State Bank of Watkins for sponsoring an entire day of swimming for everyone Friday, Aug. 23, and also giving mini beach balls, pencils and stickers for the kids. This event has been the biggest crowd the pool has had this season! Again, thank you to the Farmers State Bank of Watkins for Makin’ A Splash happen at the pool.
The Teen Night also was held Friday, Aug. 23, under the lights at the pool. Several teens enjoyed music and water contests with hotdogs and root beer floats. Thank you to AgVenture Feed & Seed for donating the ice cream for the floats. Also, to the following businesses that donated prizes: Jack’s BP, Red Goat Bar & Grill, Diva’s, Knaus Sausage House, Triple R Grill & Bar, Ugly Tom’s, EV-W Eagle Boosters, and the Valley Inn.
To the volunteers who organized, chaperoned and worked that evening a special “thanks again” for Makin’ A Splash happen at the pool!
