2012-09-25 · By Editor
Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske has announced that those who attend the September 29th Good Neighbor Festival and Picnic have several opportunities to win two roundtrip Jet Blue airline tickets or a number of other prizes.
Schipske, who is the sponsor of the annual community event that usually draws more than a thousand residents to Good Neighbor Park, explained that all participants need to do is visit the more than 40 community organization booths at the Festival and get a card stamped at each booth.
“Once you have visited at least 16 booths you are eligible for an opportunity ticket that will be dropped in a box. Participants who visit 20 booths get two tickets; visiting 24 booths gets three tickets. All completed Good Neighbor Cards must be turned in by 2 p.m. at the Festival. Winners must be present and will be announced at 3 pm,” said Schipske.
Good Neighbor Festival participants can also receive an opportunity ticket for prizes by submitting a photograph on line to firstname.lastname@example.org. The photo must show What I Like About My Good Neighborhood. Photographs will be displayed at the Festival and are sponsored by Sam’s Club.
“We started this event 6 years ago to celebrate the wonderful people and organizations that make the 5th Council District a ‘Good Neighborhood,’” reminded Schipske. “This year is bigger and better with music, food, games, fire and police equipment, a refrigerator container from the Port of Long Beach, watermelon eating, more than 40 community organization exhibits, great prizes and of course, our Good Neighbor Awardees.” The awardees are adults, youth and organizations nominated by the community and Councilwoman Schipske for being “a good neighbor.”
The Good Neighbor Festival is open to the public and begins at 10 am at Good Neighbor Park, 2800 Studebaker Road (between Spring Street and Willow Street).
