Team Tongie Block Party set for Oct. 1 at THS parking lot
Calling all vocalists: This year’s Team Tongie Community Block Party is just for you.
This year’s gathering in the THS parking lot will be 2-6:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, in the Tonganoxie High School parking lot and will feature a karaoke contest.
Though the competition is new to the annual event, inflatable rides and a hot dog and hamburger feed once again will be offered.
Cornerstone Family Worship will be serving hot dogs and hamburgers and will accept donations for food, with proceeds going toward Team Tongie.
The annual School 2 School Team Tongie 5K Walk/Run will be at 1 p.m. Oct. 1, but the registration deadline is Thursday, Sept. 22. The course will run from THS on to the elementary and middle schools, by Tonganoxie Nursing Center and then back to the high school.
Entry forms can be picked up at Tonganoxie elementary, middle and high schools and the Insurance Center, 219 E. U.S. Highway 24-20. Suggested donations are $20 for each individual, which would include a Team Tongie T-shirt, and $10 for each additional family member.
In addition, anyone wanting to order Team Tongie shirts can contact Julie Bernard at the high school, (913) 845-2654. Order forms also are being sent home with students this week.
