The 10th Annual Clemmons Community Day
BY DENISE HEIDEL, PHOTOS BY JOHN GOLDEN FRAMES AND FOTOS It’s been 10 years since Clemmons Community Day made its debut, and without question – this event lives up to its name. It’s all about community! A day filled with fun, activities, vendors, and an opportunity to celebrate living in an awesome place, Clemmons Community Day is organized by the Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce. Countless hours go into making it a day to remember and enjoyed by people of all ages! The brainchild of local real estate expert, Jody Peske, and former Clemmons mayor, John Bost, Clemmons Community Day is a reflection of unity between neighbors, friends, and local business owners. “The event fosters a strong sense of community,” shared Jody. “The folks of Clemmons are so great about supporting one another in various ways and on many levels. Clemmons Community Day gives us an opportunity to celebrate all that makes Clemmons unique.” Clemmons Community Day will be hosted at the Jerry Long Family YMCA. With over 1,600 families expected to attend, wide open spaces are a key part of making sure there’s plenty of room for everyone to enjoy themselves! The event is scheduled for Saturday, May 4, 2019. While the weather is still an unknown, Clemmons Community Day is held rain or shine. But a little rain never hurt anyone; the photos from the handful of rainy days still shine with the happy, smiling faces of those who came out to enjoy the day. As an event organized by the Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce, Clemmons Community Day helps break the assumption that a chamber does nothing but host business meetings. Local entrepreneurs and leaders are passionate about their community and are excited to meet others. Over 150 vendors look forward to sharing about their businesses and services to the community. And as former Chamber President John Golden points out, “The event is good for the business community because it allows us to showcase our products and services to local residents who may not know about us. The key here is ‘engaging.’ Businesses engaging with the community and families engaging in fun activities.” In addition to vendors, Clemmons Community Day offers all kinds of fun and games for families to enjoy, including a rock wall for kids to climb. A bounce house is always a fun addition, as well as other inflatables; train rides; and a DJ. With a DJ playing great music, and all sorts of food–there’s something for everyone! It’s a great way to showcase precisely what helps Clemmons stand apart. “Clemmons Community Day is a labor of love for all of us, and it has been since day one,” said Jody. “We are so grateful for the hours invested by our sponsors, our volunteers, the YMCA, and civil servants who make this day come together.” Clemmons Community Day is a free event but, as John mentions, “This event would not be possible without the many partnerships the Chamber has with our community and those who are willing to help sponsor the cost. We are grateful to provide this feature event for the Lewisville-Clemmons communities!” Guests are encouraged to bring a donation for the Clemmons Food Pantry. Clemmons Food Pantry always accepts canned and boxed food, but they are also in need of adult hygiene items.
