Serving up slices of refreshment
Visitors to New Berlin's 4th of July Festival at Malone Park were treated to tasty slices of watermelon thanks to the Rotary Club of New Berlin. Continuing an idea we started last year, we set up a booth and sold slices of watermelon for $1 each.
The first night, July 2, was cool and drizzly, but we still sold nearly $20 worth of watermelon. By the end of the fair, we cut up and sold 19 watermelons. All told we took in more than $300 for the event. Proceeds will be used to support our ongoing efforts in the community.
Pictured here are Rotarians Dale Worden and Dianne Moore getting ready to start a new day. Dianne is holding a plate of samples; diners received a half slice of watermelon, much like the image in the banner.
Several Rotarians and friends assisted in this event, for which we are thankful. The Rotary Club of New Berlin extends a special thank you to Dale for organizing this event--it's a lot of work!--and manning the booth all three days. And of course, thank you to the hundreds of visitors to our booth who helped make this year's watermelon sale a success. We'll see you again next year!
