Adding 'New' to 'Olde'

New events planned for Olde Fashioned Sunday

(Continued)

The “new” Olde Fashioned Sunday is a result of the efforts of Paul Swindlehurst and Bunny Chasen, the event’s new organizers. Lacroix spoke highly of the two new event chairs, saying they did a great job coming up ways to breathe life into the long-running event.

“They’ve put a lot of extra effort into event this year and completely revamped it,” Lacroix said, later adding that “They’ve built a great base of volunteers, and the Board of Directors have been incredibly supportive.”

Lacroix said the majority of the day’s events would be free to the public, including the bouncy houses and carnival games, but there are a handful of things that organizers will be charging for. He added that he’s thankful for everyone that has volunteered to help contribute to the afternoon and is looking forward to a fun and family-friendly day.
