CLUBS: JOIN LW'S
IT'S TOO LATE
See page 14. GREAT LW DISCOVERY TOUR
Deadline looms for clubs to join LW's massive community event
by Kathy Thayer
The Great LW Discovery Tour will be held on Saturday, April 6, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., and it will top anything GRF has done since the 50th anniversary event. If you have a GRF club and haven’t signed up yet, you won’t want to miss out.
It will be fun central with live music, food trucks, raffles, games, giveaways, grand prizes, club open houses, amenity tours, public service booths, a small business expo and a super sponsor center so residents can learn more about trusted real estate, health and other service providers.
The event will give everyone— especially those who don’t typically take advantage of all LW’s amenities—an opportunity to experience a wide variety of activities.
Approximately 30 clubs have signed up, many with exciting ideas to entice residents to try something new. There are a few spots left so contact Recreation before the opportunity closes.
The vendors who have signed up for Clubhouses 2 or 4 are providing fabulous prizes throughout the day as well as the Grand Finale closing ceremonies at Veterans Plaza.
The Recreation Dep artment expects to draw up to 3,000 residents to the event.
Three food trucks have been secured and an ice cream truck is pending to top off the day. Tour guides, supplied by the Theater Club and Recreation ambassadors posted in each venue will make sure attendees are guided to their club’s spot.
Every participant will receive a LW Discovery Tour passport, which will be marked at every destination visited, qualifying travelers for a host of prizes, including several grand prizes that will be raffled off at the closing ceremony at Veterans Plaza. All clubhouses will be brimming with action.
Residents can get passports and begin their tours at any of the four clubhouse stops.
Buses will run at 10-minute intervals from each of the stops, transporting travelers to the various venues, where they will get their passports stamped ahead of the closing ceremony and grand prize raffle at Veterans Plaza between Clubhouses 3 and 4. Clubs that join in on the action can simply have a table display with information, handouts, prizes, or may put on a more elaborate presentation.
Most clubs will be staged at Clubhouse 3, but others will be situated in their usual clubhouse.
Every clubhouse and amenity is included. This is a chance to show neighbors what they are missing.
Space for clubs is filling up fast. Clubs that have not yet applied to participate should contact Recreation as soon as possible by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
