Schuyler Hill Civic Association, in keeping with its long tradition, hosted their annual Summer Olympics on Saturday, August 23.
The day’s events were coordinated by Bob Kurz, president, beginning at noon and continued until 6 p.m., providing all the members with a fun-filled day. The events included: running and swimming races, orange gathering, egg throwing, sponge and bucket game, cupcake decorating contest, pie eating and watermelon eating contests, tug of war, etc.
As part of the festivities, the children received a bag of chips, soda, iced tea and watermelon.
The Cupcake Decorating Contest brought out the creativity in the children, with their creative cupcake designs being judged in several categories. The judges had a very difficult time selecting the winners because all the children came up with so many different and beautiful designs. But, after carefully looking at the many designs, the judges selected the following winners: Prettiest: Stacey Grossman and Natalie Wenzell; Funniest: Nathan Wade and Joshua Aulet; Original: Grace Mutze and Helen Galioto; and Scariest: John Riggio and Juliana Aulet.
An unexpected event took place, whereas Bob Kurz was presented with an award as a token of appreciation for his over 30 years of service to the club.
The award ceremony took place after the completion of the events, at which time the winners of the various events received trophies, medals, toys, candy, or cash prizes.
