Outdoors organizations sought for upcoming recreation day
— Outdoor enthusiast clubs, groups and organizations are being sought to participate in a May 14 event designed to promote recreation.
“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 email@example.com.
