On May 3 we held our 2nd Annual Oaks Day Party! The ladies enjoyed making Derby hats while their kids decorated jockey-silk coloring sheets and colored rubber duckies with jockey silk colors. The kids used straws to blow the ducks across a small pool in our First Annual KenDucky Oaks race! Our float decoration and parade plans were cancelled due to weather this year, but we will revisit the parade next year.
At 11:30am the 701 Chow Wagon opened in our lunchroom. Our version served favorites such as funnel cakes, deep fried candy bars, lemon shake-ups, brats, corn dogs, burgers, nachos, walking tacos, ice cream novelties and Derby pie!
We are so grateful for all the volunteers and staff that helped make the day happen! We had an outpouring of help from Love Thy Neighborhood and some of our regulars! Looking forward to next year!
