Carnival features fun for all ages

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

The public is invited to enjoy activities during The Brazil Times' "Clark Kent Super Group" team's Relay For Life Carnival from 1-3 p.m., Saturday.

Tickets will be sold so people can participate in various games and activities, including a duck pond, corn hole/hillbilly golf tournament, face painting and bean bag toss. Tickets are 50 cents each or 12 for $5.

Water balloons will also be available for people to throw at Times' employees including Editor Jason Moon, General Manager Lynne Llewellyn, Sales Representative John Adamson and Staff Reporter Jason Jacobs.

The band "Lowdown" will be on hand to provide musical entertainment. They have also agreed to take song requests for two tickets, let the first five people who have dreamed about jamming with a band do so for 20 tickets and perform at least one round of "Name That Tune."

Wyndham Bros. will also auction off various donated items and baked goods from local retailers, residents and Times staff employees.

Two Brazil Times employees will also be collecting donations to have their hair cut in support of the 2009 American Cancer Society's Relay For Life, Sales Representative John "Deano" Adamson and Staff Reporter Jason "Mouth From The South" Jacobs.

Adamson will have his head shaved during the carnival Saturday, while Jacobs is also entering his ponytail and beard into the Relay For Life Silent Auction May 8-9.

Plants, seeds and hand-made barrettes made especially for Relay For Life will also be available for sale.

"This is our team's biggest fundraiser for Relay," Llewellyn said about the event. "We hope lots of people will come out to support us and the other Relay teams that will set up booths."

Llewellyn said other Relay For Life teams still have time to register for a booth spot during the carnival. Contact Llewellyn at The Brazil Times office at 446-2216, before 5 p.m., Thursday, to secure a spot.

oops, I accidentally left my answer on the other story! Guess I'm goofy today! At the newspaper office, I called after I posted earlier today. Sounds like fun, doesn't it! Too bad they didn't have a few of the previous carriers! I'd like to handle a delivery problem!
