COMMUNITY COOK-OUT
ALL WERE WELCOME!
Food, Fun & Games
 
   Hundreds of Individuals from the
community past and present, along
with several dignitaries and local community leaders, descended upon 
The Independent Club of Colonia,
to help make our Community Cook-Out 
a fabulous celebration.
 
  It was a pleasure seeing our seniors and youths of the community turn out in great numbers to enjoy a fun filled beautiful day.
  There was a large variety of food to choose from, along with plenty of games and entertainment. The music kept lots of people dancing and reminiscing the days of old. 
 
While there was lots of food and entertainment, the vocal point seem to center around friends and family members not seen by the community in years, To mention anyone and not all would be a great in justice to those who traveled many miles to share this day. However your presence was greatly appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed. We look forward to staying in touch and seeing you at future events.

Thousands of people turned out to participate in the March to Washington. The march was organized for the purpose of supporting President Obama and his Congressional fight for more jobs and job opportunities. There were many guest speakers, all of whom were right on point including the Rev Al Sharpton. Most national news medias carried some form of the event, while local tv coverage showed brief excerpts. All and all it was dynamic, successful undertaken, perhaps a once in a life time experienced .
      
    
 
    Family Day     
   Lamont Swain Park 
 
   
The Independent Club Of Colonia participated in a Wiffle Ball Tournament, to help raise money for the Elementary and Middle School Track Teams. The event was well attended, there was food, fun and entertainment for all ages. Although our whiffle ball skills were not quite up to our enthusiasm, it is certainly worth noting several incidents of heroics and laughter.
 
   First and foremost, it was a very amusing and fun filled event. The President of The Independent Club (Glen Morgan) who was also our starting pitcher, hit a line drive home run that cleared not only the fence but the bleachers as well. Beverly Webb our Vice President continues to go the extra mile. After each hit she aggressively ran to first base, the only stag, there were no bases to run to.This was a no base running whiffle ball game, we applaud her efforts. Mary Preston who started off slow, came into her own by the second game and rattled off two consecutive hits, one of which became the only run scored. Karen Sadler played center field and could not have been more dependable, after several close attempts to catch outfield flies while diving to the ground, she made a spectacular one handed catch to end the ending and prevent a run from being scored. Phil Hall was the fifth player to round out the five man team, his ongoing laughter and encouraging words help made the event a pleasurable one.
 
  We also had our own cheer leading section consisting of several club members, Rhonda Nicholson and Juanita Lewis along with a guest appearance by Mrs Sadler. We thank all for their participation.
