CONOWINGO

“We just want to draw ev­ery­one’s at­ten­tion to all the ac­tiv­i­ties around Conowingo and Ce­cil County,” said Jeff Coale, or­ga­nizer of the new Conowingo Out­doors Day.

Spear­headed by the Conowingo Lions Club, Coale said the event is set to run from 8 a.m. un­til 1 p.m. at the park on Route 222 south of the Conowingo Dam.

“Every­thing will be free to the pub­lic and the ex­hibitors,” Coale said Mon­day.

Groups not only from Ce­cil County, but also from neigh­bor­ing Har­ford and Lan­caster, Pa., coun­ties are wel­come, Coale said.

“We’re look­ing for 4-H, Scouts, any group that does any type of out­door ac­tiv­ity,” he said.

In­ter­ested groups can send an email to Coale at dj­coale@zoom­inter­net.net.

The day will be­gin with a 5K or 10K run/walk to ben­e­fit di­a­betes aware­ness. To en­roll, go on­line to http://www.ac­tive.com/ por t- de­posit- md/ run­ning/ dis­tance- run­ning- races/ conowingo­lions-club-5k-and-10k-for-di­a­bete­saware­ness-2016.
