Rain and shine, the community had a good time! The clouds and rain did not stop community members from grabbing an umbrella and putting on a happy face to enjoy a fun-filled Summer Celebration on July 4, 2022. Fortunately for all, the clouds did part and the sun began shining.
The 2nd annual celebration opened with the singing of the National Anthem by Winamac Community High School Student Lauren Fredel and a color salute conducted by Pulaski County veterans. Then guests enjoyed barrel rides, a ring toss game, balloon twisting, face painting, flag craft, temporary tattoos, hair tinsel, crown decorating, cornhole, badminton, wiffle ball, dunk tank, and a variety of other activities. Even with the rain clouds at the beginning, there were over 800 visitors to the event during the 2-hour period.
Positive exchanges took place throughout the evening by attendees of all ages. PCT Secretary-Treasurer Diana Day noted, "Seeing all the smiling faces makes the hard work worth the effort. I'm proud of what we are able to do for Pulaski County."
As the event concluded, visitors were encouraged to find a spot to enjoy the fireworks show by the Town of Winamac.
This event is an excellent example of community members throughout Pulaski County coming together to embrace the pace of Pulaski County!
