Block Parties at Capital Park PDF Print E-mail

"We've done block parties at Capital Park for the past two years." Wayne Crowder, SLF Lightning Rod for South Salem, was telling the story.

The church provides food, condiments, tables, chairs, games and activities for kids. Salem Leadership Foundation helps out with the costs. The youth from the church helped out with the project. Wayne's job was to cook the hot dogs.

They've had attendance of 100-150 people from the community each year. The first year, they had bounce houses for the kids. The vendor for those bounce houses became a partner and a participant in the program! "We also had participation from the Community Progress Team and the Neighborhood Association. The Fire and Police Departments showed up, and it was a really good event."
