The Town of Exeter will be hosting its 3rd Annual Open House on Sunday, September 12, 2010 at the Exeter Town Park located east of Belleville on County D. The park is located on nearly 12 acres of land along the Sugar River in Dayton. The open house will celebrate the installation of new playground equipment and park improvements made during 2010 as well as raising money for the next phase of development.
There is something for everyone! Meet the Green County Dairy Queen and get a cool taste of Wisconsin dairy from the ice cream trailer provided by the Green County Ag. Chest. Bring your lawn chairs, Frisbees, balls & gloves, fishing poles and enjoy a relaxing afternoon on the river. Entertainment and fun for the kids include the new playground equipment, an inflatable bouncy house, and a fishing contest. For the adults there will be a neighborly good time with friends & neighbors, the ever popular duck races down the Sugar River and drawings. Drawings will be provided by local community businesses and take place at 2:00pm. And an original one of a kind painting, “June Pastorial” by local artist Jonathan Wilde will be on display – a special drawing will take place for this original artwork.
If you’re hungry, get a brat, roast pork sandwich or hot dog, chips, beans, drink, dessert and one duck entry – all for only $5.00 per person. Table service is provided.
Kids 15 and younger can join in the fun and participate in a fishing contest. Be sure to bring your fishing pole and bait. The fishing contest will start at 9:30 am and conclude by 1:30pm. The kids who catch the longest fish by 1:30 will have some special prizes awarded.
Always a favorite, watch as the ducks race down the Sugar River. Duck races start promptly at 1:30pm. Watch to see which entries arrive first to take home a prize. Each meal purchased will receive a duck; purchase additional ducks for $1.00 each. Prizes will be awarded following the race.
We invite you to volunteer on the Park Committee, or to make a donation. Park Committee Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm at the Exeter Town Hall. If you would like more information, please contact Deb Broge, Park Committee Chair at 608-938-4170 or contact the Town Hall at 424-1697 to help at the park event.
The Exeter Park Committee would like to thank all of the local businesses who donated to this event, and the many contributors who helped to raise the money for the newly installed playground equipment. This open house is possible through their ongoing support and generosity.
