Back To Front Page

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.
