Pirates steal first place in party contest

By Debbie Sowell
As the sun started to set on the 2010 CY Festival Friday 4 Miler, all parties were gearing up to cheer the runners to their best possible times. They ranged from just a few lawn chairs along the sidewalk, to rowdy partygoers inviting runners to enjoy a cold, frosty beverage, to a seaside pirate adventure, and everything in between. Thanks to all who supported this event and these runners. Fun was had by all, from the oldest to the youngest.
This year’s winner for best Light The Way party goes to 2027 Nelson. They had an “Ahoy Matey” theme that was over the top! The picture says it all. The runners were abuzz at the after party asking, “Did you see the pirate ship?” This crew thought of everything.
Second place went to 1854 Oliver. At this LTW party all attendees dressed in sports gear, from headbands to jerseys. Go! Team! Go!
Third place went to 2077 Oliver. There were lights everywhere that shown down on an enthusiastic bunch.
Thanks to all who participated. Good things were said about all of our wonderful neighbors. Nevertheless, someone had the gall to ask for more parties. Well, next year is our 20th anniversary. They don’t know what they’re in for!
