Ridgeville Community Day Provides “Warm Fuzzies”




 

 

Ridgeville Community Day went well, said Jayma Gobrogge of Friends of the Park, a group that supports the Ridgeville Township Park Board.

The event, held Saturday, Sept. 21, is a fund-raiser for the park and for the community improvement committee. Members of Friends of the Park heard many compliments and got a lot of good responses from people in the community, she said.

Event coordinators had not completed financial results as of Tuesday, Gobrogge said.

While some people didn’t formally volunteer prior to the event, they did “pitch in,” taking over jobs and offering volunteers some relief.

Gobrogge said children had a great time at the carnival games, and those serving dinner ran out of hamburgers and bratwurst. There were hot dogs left over.

“It was one of those days that give you the warm fuzzies,” she said.
