Rainbow Park ice cream social planned June 15

Come join the festivities at Rainbow Park from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, June 15. The park is located in the 500 block between South Vine and South Birch streets in Creston. The Creston Southside Boosters and Old Tyme Power Club are co-sponsoring this event.

They are having an old-fashioned ice cream social with lots of goodies including cookies, cakes, pies and bars for a free-will donation.

Other activities going on throughout the afternoon include country music, drawings for door prizes, a tractor show, and for the first time, a car snow. Bring your vintage or special car, truck or motorcycle to show off. There is no entry fee for these events. There will be a “People’s Choice Award” for the car show as well.

The country music entertainment will be a wonderful show. Rick Titus of Creston is in charge and has planned a terrific show. Titus, being a wonderful singer to his own credit, has also lined up Sheila Sadie Pierson of Lineville, Kirk Shoemaker of Jewel, Kansas, Gordon Riley of Overland Park, Kansas, and Ricky Cross on drums from Mt. Etna. Cross has played in the Mt. Etna Opry for many years. The other musicians have performed with some famous bands in the past. Plans are for some other special musical guests as well. Everyone is in for a treat.

This fundraising event co-sponsored by the Southside Boosters Club and Old Tyme Power Club is held so they may continue to support their interests in the community. Rainbow Park has been supported throughout the years by the booster club, including building the small shelter house, putting a new roof on the bandstand, installing metal archways, new playground equipment, new flag poles, putting flowers in the fountain flower pots every year, painting the structures and doing what they can with the fountain. The Old Tyme Power Club has many charities they support throughout the year as well, so we hope you can come spend the afternoon with us and have a fun, relaxing time. Bring your lawn chairs and your appetite.

Last year, we had a wonderful time and we hope you will join us and help make our fundraiser a huge success. This event is open to the public, and in conjunction with Creston’s Sesquicentennial Celebration, so come out for an entertaining afternoon at our little slice of Heaven – Rainbow Park. Ann Wenzig of Old Tyme Power will be cruising the park in her four-wheeler to give rides from your parking place to the festivity area for those needing assistance.

In case of rain, the event will be rescheduled to a it later date.
