On Sunday May 27th, 2012, the Pressfriends Newsletter collaboration had their Annual Conference at the Wilderness Dance Hall at Knott’s Berry Farm. All of the newsletters where there for a meet and greet, buffet style lunch and plenty of entertainment and prizes. The members were given certificates for their participation and were rewarded with an extra special prize…Build A Bears!!! The entire day was fun and our members had a great time. They participated in a couple of games and when it was over got soaked on Bigfoot Rapids because the sun was shining brightly on us that day. Thank you to Pressfriends and congratulations to all of our members.
On Saturday, June 9th 2012, the Wilmington Branch got out and got active participating in a 5K Walk around the Wilmington Waterfront Park sponsored by Radio Disney. The walk was co-sponsored by the California Milk “Got Milk?” campaign. Walkers were given free milk (chocolate and white) during and after the walk to keep up their stamina and support healthy attitudes and bodies. Radio Disney provided great entertainment with games, prizes, dancing and so much more. There were booths to visit to get information and the guests were treated to a dance performance by the stars of the Disney Channel show “Shake It Up”. Guests were also given an opportunity to get autographs and take pictures with the stars. Our members had a great time and were super excited to be able to take part in this fun and healthy day of walking, exercise and great sunshine.
