Annual Pumphrey Day planned Aug. 5


Pumphrey Day is just around the corner. Set aside the time for a day of family fun, or donate items for the auction, or rent a table and sell the items yourself.

The annual event will be held all day Aug. 5 at the Lloyd Keaser Community Center on Belle Grove Road.

It takes a lot of volunteers to make Pumphrey Day a success. If you can lend a hand, call 789-9127.

There's plenty to do for everyone.

All community kids are invited to participate in the king and queen contest. To register a child, call 789-4512.

A 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament will be conducted. To sign up, call 636-4672.

Tables and space are available to rent. A limited number of booths also are available. Items still are needed for the auction. If you would like to make a donation, call 789-7829.

There will also be a crab feast drawing and a 50/50 raffle. Neighborhood children are encouraged to decorate their bicycles and ride in the parade.

If you would like to showcase your talent on Pumphrey Day, please call 789-1346.
