Rockwell Music in the Park offers fun for all

ROCKWELL ó Music, magic and a kids’ pedal-tractor pull are among the activities planned for the Rockwell Community Association’s Music in the Park event Aug. 1.
The annual fundraiser is a collaborative effort of the Association and Rockwell Lion’s Club, Rockwell Civitan Club and Rockwell’s Women’s Club.
Free events include:
– Magic show at 4 p.m.
– Kids’ pedal tractor pull competition, registration at 4:30, starting at 5 p.m.
– One Love Gospel Hour at 6 p.m.
– Piedmont Primetime Community Band will close the evening at 7 p.m.
The Rockwell Fire Department will provide free blood pressure screening and the YMCA donated its bounce house for fun for kids.
Kids from 4 to 12 years old are welcome to participate in the tractor pull. They must be accompanied by an adult and register 30 minutes before the event. Prizes will be awarded for the winners in each category.
According to Ann McManus, president of the Rockwell Community Association, proceeds from the event will be donated to Nazareth Children’s Home. McManus said the Association raises money through the sale of food and drinks donated by businesses and individuals in the community including Hap’s Hot Dog Wagon and Cheerwine.
Cotton candy and ice cream will also be available.
Beginning each September, the Association holds monthly dinner meetings at 6 p.m. on the third Monday of each month at the Rockwell Community Building behind the Police Station. If you would like to be a part of the group, call Ann McManus at 704-209-0422 or e-mail her at cmcmanus12@carolina.rr.com.
