Exeter Fun Days - A Whole Lot of FUN!!

Midnight Magic featuring Donnie Mason (of Exeter) was the headliner band at the Exeter Volunteer Fire Department Street Dance.

Magician Adam White entertained the kids and parents alike with his comedic magic show Saturday at the street dance.

Softball, snow cones, swimming and a street dance all added up to a great day in Exeter on Saturday.

The softball tournament started Saturday morning and continued through Sunday with teams from all over the area competing.

The Exeter Aquatic Center had snow cones at the pool on Saturday afternoon and the Exeter Chamber of Commerce passed out $2.00 gift certificates to be used at the pool to each child entering the first hour. Despite the cooler temperatures the snow cones were a hit.

Raffle tickets for donated baskets to benefit the slide fund were available at the pool in the afternoon and were also displayed at the street dance. The Exeter Chamber of Commerce sponsored the raffle. The baskets were raffled off at 8:15 p.m. Winners and donaters were:

The Village of Exeter donated a 2010 family pool pass to the new Aquatic Center and Paul and Becky Erdkamp donated a basket with pool items - Won by Hope Androyna.

Vickie Ozenbaugh donated a basket on behalf of the post office stuffed with stamps, envelopes and other goodies and LaVonne Guthrie's name was drawn.

Greg's Market donated a BBQ basket with frozen burgers, buns, chips and condiments and it was won by Annette Gloystein.

Bill and Terri Volkmer donated four family passes to their annual pumpkin painting event in the fall. Also included are a custom painted pumpkin for the family. Winners were Hope Androyna, Troy Kalhoff, Dean Bartu and Ben Horne.

First National Bank in Exeter also donated a 2010 family pool pass which included beach towels, sunscreen and a nice pool bag. This prize was won by Melanie Papik.

Alan and Noreen Songster donated two $25 chamber bucks certificates to be raffled off and Hope Androyna won as well as Kay Due.

Leesa Bartu donated a variety of home canned goods included several jellies, salsa and tomato juice. LaVonne Guthrie won this basket.

Just before the baskets were raffled off the Exeter Chamber of Commerce sponsored a kiddie parade. There were twelve participants. From pedal tractors, to bikes and buggies the parade was adorable and everyone loved the Shetland pony who brought up the rear!

The fireman served a very nice supper of hot dogs, grilled chicken breasts, or beef sandwiches for the crowd. Then the band started playing. Midnight Magic had a great mix of oldies, country and rock to please everyone.
