Bash coming to Herreid for pool project

Volunteers still needed for special events

The Herreid community is wrapping up the summer with a bang as it holds its first ever End-of-Summer Bash.

The event will take place beginning at 9 a.m. Aug. 13 at the Herreid Community Center.

The End-of-Summer Bash, which is sponsored by Town and Country Gals, is bringing the community together to raise funds for the Pool Improvement Project.

“(The event will be) fun for all ages,” said Kayla Huber of Town and Country Gals. 

She added all proceeds raised will not only go toward the project, but each dollar will be matched.

“We have matching funds so whatever is raised will be matched,” she said.

City-wide rummage sales will begin at 9 a.m. and go until about 1 p.m. Maps will be available for those wanting to find treasures.

A variety of trucks will be available for the food truck festival from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Herreid-Selby Area volleyball team will also be doing a bake sale and car wash from 1 to 5 p.m.

Beginning at 2 p.m., a corn hole tournament will start – naming the last three teams standings as the champs. The cost to participate is $20.

There will be main attractions for the kiddos as well, including a Wet ‘N’ Wild Kiddie Carnival, which is $5 for 10 games, and a petting zoo sponsored by the Campbell County 4H.

The night will end with dancing under the tent as the Cody Charles Band plays from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Huber said other attractions will include a dunk tank, sidewalk chalk drawings and a full cash bar, which will be available throughout the day.

Event coordinators are still in need of some volunteers for events like the dunk tank and more.

Anyone wanting to volunteer or looking for more information can contact Huber at 605-848-1289.
