The 75th annual
Lions Club Turtle Derby will be run at 11:00 a.m. on July 4, in the
basketball courts in Hawthorne Park, Porter.
The turtles, with a
lot of encouragement from their owners, will be vying for trophies and
prizes, and kidsí meals donated by The Port Drive-in.
Kids are to
register their turtles between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m. The first heat will
start at 11:00. No snapping turtles, please!
Also, bring the
family out early to enjoy a yummy pancake and sausage breakfast, also hosted
by the Lions Club, from 7-11:30 a.m. before the 9 a.m. parade, and Turtle
Derby at 11 a.m.
