Annual Duck Race Winners announced
Bath Farmers’ Market Duck Race.
The Chicken Corner Celebrates grand opening by DAWN DUDECK TUNNEY The Chicken Corner, Nazareth borough's newest option for takeout and delivery, held its grand opening ribbon cutting on Tuesday, July 23. The eatery, located at the corners of Bushkill Center and W. Moorestown Roads, offers quality comfort food quickly and with a
variety of sides and specials, as well as family and kid’s meals. Gina Martins, Senior Vice President of Member Relations, was the MC for the evening, leading the crowd of customers and local politicians in greeting the new business owners to the area. Continued on page 3
The Chicken Corner celebrates with ribbon cutting.
by DAWN DUDECK TUNNEY The Bath Farmers’ Market held its annual Duck Race Friday night at 5:30 p.m. The event is the largest fundraiser of the year for the market. The race began at Clock Park in the center of town when 20 rubber duckies were placed in Monocacy Creek and were followed to Keystone Park, where the Farmers’ Market is located. The ducks were then pulled out and the winners were
called up to claim their prizes. Tickets were available through local businesses to purchase for $5 up until race time. There was a first place prize of $250 and 19 other prizes donated by Bath's retailers. It is their most popular event of the year and assists with the costs of advertising and employees. The winners for the duck race were as follows, with the first Continued on page 2

Looking by Back Ed Pany Impact of WWII Today I am in the new Bath Museum looking at the impact of World War II on Bath, the year of 1940. Our economy was slowly improving, we were optimistic, and we hoped the Great Depression was in the past. In 1940 war raged in Europe and Japan threatened the peace in Asia. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941 thrust us into world war, one we attempted to avoid. Now our factories, farms and citizens mobilized for the war. Soon the draft would send 14 million men to war; Bath would answer the call with 240 men and women serving in our military. Even the machine shops in our cement plants manufactured war materials. My good friend Margie Rehrig
recalls, “My aunt was a member of the Needle Guild, a group of ladies who knitted socks, caps and items like their mothers did. I was thrilled to be a part of the group.” “We also gave gum, newspapers and candy to soldiers who filled Lehigh New England RR passenger cars as they passed through Bath. There were smiles on their faces, we hoped they all would return home safely.” The Western Union telegraph agent in Bath was a friendly man named John Sensenbach. The tick of the telegraph would bring news of the way to Bath. Residents were very concerned when they saw him walk down the streets to deliver telegrams. Continued on page 7

When the Rockefeller Group proposed building warehouses on Weaversville Road in East Allen Township, the Supervisors listened to the residents, weighed all the pros and cons and voted not to change the Zoning to allow the warehouses to be built. Now the Rockefeller Group (who has all the money) is suing East Allen Township to allow these warehouses. I guess they think they know what is best for our township, or is it the residents that have lived here for 50+ years and have traveled these roads know what is best. Also, Jaindl, with all his wisdom, proposed building warehouses between Seemsville Road and Howertown Road, with an additional 800 (1600 trips) tractor trailers entering and exiting the property. I really think PennDot needs to do another traffic check after the two warehouses, which are now under construction, are completed and that traffic hits our cow path roads. Someone said PennDot was paid off, but I cannot believe that they would jeopardize their integrity and rule in favor until additional traffic studies are completed. Our major highways are 248, 329, 512, and Airport Road, all twolane highways, all other roadways are literally cow paths. This additional traffic (tractor trailers and cars) will cripple this area, which almost looks like a parking lot at times now. Maggie Kemp, East Allen Township
Allen Township Considers Truck Traffic Restrictions
By KERI LINDENMUTH During their meeting on Tuesday, July 23, Allen Township supervisors discussed the possibilities for truck traffic restrictions in the township. Local authorities are allowed to restrict traffic on
township roads without the need for traffic studies. The discussion came after residents made requests for truck restriction signage at Walker Drive, McNair Drive, Buckingham Drive, and Adams Street. With multiple warehouses in the township, residents have seen an influx of truck traffic on local roads. There have been complaints of trucks shaking homes. Neighboring townships have seen similar problems, with some trucks getting stuck on roads and even damaging traffic lights. “The trucks are here [and] there are more coming,” said Supervisor Dale Hassler. Instead of picking roads oneby-one, Hassler suggested “no trucks” signage at the entranceway of all private developments in the township. “Make it a standard practice to protect people inside the developments,” he said. Some supervisors worried that the signs will go unread. “There are a lot of signs out there that people do not follow,” said Supervisor Larry Oberly. “The more signs you put up, the less they are going to read them.” However, Hassler said that even if signs “keep out 50 percent of the trucks, I will call it a victory.” Continued on page 3

Supervisors asked the township’s manager and engineer to look at all of the streets that could be impacted by Hassler’s request to see which, if any, would require traffic studies. In other news, supervisors unanimously approved an amendment to the township’s stormwater ordinance. The amendment restricts infiltration
pits from being installed on any property less than one acre. However, this ordinance will only affect new properties moving forward. This ordinance will not impact the Graystone Circle properties, which have been plagued by flooding. Residents were at Tuesday’s meeting and said flooding issues still remain, with no word from their homes’ developer. Allen Township will be following up.

Northampton Borough supervisors was held earlier in the week. The meeting was in regards to the intermunicipal sewer agreement, which has been expired since 2016. A new agreement proposes a rate increase. “I believe we had some positive result,” said Oberly. However, he could not say more on the issue.
Chicken Corner Continued from page 1
The Chicken Corner is owned by Dave and Kelly Infantino, a local couple who decided to take the leap into working for themselves last October. Dave is a longtime chef who began in the same industry he is now planning to dominate. Tired of making the long drive to New Jersey every day and deciding to make a change for their family, the Infantinos saw the location open for rent and with the help of Alfero Construction, their plans came to life. The Infantinos live within a few miles of their business and say one of the reasons for their decision to open a chicken restaurant was because of the limited delivery options in the area. The Chicken Corner will deliver to all of Nazareth and 15 minutes in each direction. As of now, they have no set days off, although they plan on eventually being open seven days a week. Also in attendance were State
Representative Marcia Hahn, Jessica O’Donnell of the chamber, as well as many other chamber members and local business supporters. The Chicken Corner also offers seafood and uses Perdue Harvestland chicken, with no antibiotics, hormones or steroids, raised cage-free and fed an all-vegetarian diet with no animal by-products. The Chicken Corner is located at Bushkill Corners Center, 291 W. Moorestown Rd.

Natural perspectives For the health-minded individual
I wish I had an Answer My dad knew everything, at least I thought so and candidly, I still do. Perhaps it wasn’t so much so that he always had the correct scientific rationale type answer, yet he typically offered up reasonable viewpoints and common sense perspectives on, well, “everything.” So when my wife says, “You’re just like your father,” I try and think that this is what she is eluding to. With regards to our healthcare, I feel we need to adopt this type of approach. The reason I express this is because more often than not, we do not have a tried and true scientific answer to what may be the root of what’s transpiring inside the

human body. Said another way, by and large, while we may actually see what’s going on, we actually have no idea what’s causing it. And if this is the case, then we must implore the lost art of common sense to try and figure it out. I don’t know about you but I do not have fifty years to wait until somebody figures it all out. I’ll be in a different place by then….a better one. While I am here however, I want to feel good, emotionally, physically, and spiritually and live life to the fullest. How can you do that you ask? I wish I had the answer. I do suspect living abundantly does include such things as drinking clean water, breathing clean air, consuming proper nourishment, getting appropriate rest, and

BOROUGH OF NAZARETH Public Works Department
The Borough of Nazareth is seeking a “full time” employee to work in its Public Works Department. Candidates must possess a high school diploma or GED, a valid driver’s license and a commercial driver’s license (CDL). The preferred applicant should be a skilled electrician with general and 3-phase electrical experience. Applicants must be knowledgable about construction and the maintenance of buildings and roads and have abilities relating to the upkeep of parks and grounds plus have the capability to plow snow and lift fifty (50) pounds. All other construction, carpentry, electrical, concrete, masonry and plumbing skills will be considered a plus. Interested persons may come to the Borough Office, 134 S. Main Street, during business hours, 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday for applications and will be required to hand deliver completed applications and letters of interest to the same address. Please highlight specific job abilities and competencies in your application and letter of interest. Deadline for receipt of hand-delivered applications is August 5, 2019. Some additions details will be available on the Borough website: www.nazarethboroughpa.com. Carl R. Strye Jr. Chairman, Public Works Borough of Nazareth
of course bodily activity. I don’t think anyone would argue against these essential foundational items. Beyond that however, it’s actually quite personal, isn’t it? For me, I couldn’t go a day without giving praise to the Lord Almighty to Whom I am becoming ever increasingly aware that I live under His authority, by His grace and on His time. That may not be your view but it is my natural perspective, as it was my father’s. And as I said, he knew everything. Now in your particular life scenario, living fully alive may absolutely need to include playing the piano, or a paintbrush, or scaling Mt. Everest. Pursuing whatever is laid on your heart has got to be a significant part to fully living. To be sure, each season of our lives brings forth new viewpoints. Maybe in the early years, abundant living was the high jump or going long for a pass. Now it may be camping, reading, or working through crossword puzzles. It’s all good. Now I do not profess to know all that much. I simply see things as they truly are, just like my father did. I do know a few things about health, healing, and all that entails, yet I cannot tell you exactly how a plum keeps me living. I know plums have certain nutrients, yet even in this simple example there is perhaps hundreds, if not thousands, of undiscovered “things” that have yet to be discovered and revealed. So while you or I may not fully understand how a plum keeps us going, I relish in the fact that I don’t need to. The body will fully enjoy the benefits of it anyway. The same can be said of all good food sources, as well as laughter, or singing a worship song. I am not fully aware of how it all works exactly, and candidly I do not know, yet electricity works. All I do is push a button on the wall and magically the light comes on… So I wish I had all the answers, I do not, but I laugh that I don’t always need to. The amazing human body already knows more than our logical “thinking” minds ever will. My best to you.

By KERI LINDENMUTH During their meeting on Thursday, July 25, East Allen Township supervisors discussed the progress, or in their opinion, lack of progress at Regency at Creekside Meadows, a Toll Brothers development on Route 512. Developers requested a reduction in their site improvements security of $410,929.95 and a reduction in their road improvements security of $606,657.75. However, supervisors suspended their decision on this request, frustrated by what they see is a lack of progress at the development. “This project should be further along,” said Supervisor Roger Unangst. “I would not want to take it over.” Unangst said that the land could never be reverted back to farmland. Should the developers abandon the property, the township would be left to finish the job. “There are no plans on ever making the township do development,” said Unangst. Supervisors asked Hanover Engineering to inspect the property before deciding whether the security money should be released. In other news, the township will be submitting an application for a multimodal grant to help improve parking at Jacksonville Park. The $375,000 grant will help pay for a new parking lot, a trail connection, and speed detection signage. The township would have to match the grant with $56,250. However, Manager Brent Green says the township’s developer escrow should be able to cover “80 percent” of that match. Supervisors also heard the waiver request for Longevity Coatings, a protective coatings
business on Adams Lane off Airport Road. The business is looking to build a 5,000 square-foot addition to hold refurbished materials until they can be picked up by clients. The business’s owners are hoping to change the plan from a land development plan to a site plan, which would be solely conducted and approved by the township’s zoning officer. The main reasoning for this request, business owners say, is that there will be no increase to impervious coverage. Supervisors asked that the business drop existing impervious coverage by as much as possible and designate a secondary septic area. On these conditions, they would be open to granting the request. Supervisors asked Hanover Engineering to draft the motion, which they will vote on during their next meeting. Finally, it was announced that an extension was granted through September 30 for a curative amendment hearing between the township and Rock Lehigh Valley in regards to a warehouse project at Willowbrook and Weaversville Roads. Green said he believes that a hearing will be held in September. Neighboring property owners will be notified and signs will be posted on the property announcing the hearing date.

By Franklin Homme Sometimes we feel God is silent. Have you ever felt as if God was giving you the silent treatment? Perhaps you had answered prayer about it and you ask yourself - for God to give you directions for your life but didn’t hear a thing (Isaiah 40:11). How do you respond when the Lord doesn’t appear to be answering your prayers? Do you ever take advantage of the opportunity to learn something from the experience, or do you simply conclude that He is ignoring you? (Rom. 8:31-34) The wisest approach is to pray and wait on the Lord for direction. But how do we begin? Prayer starts with transitioning our thoughts from the situation at hand to the Lord. When we pray God-centered prayers according to His will, we can be certain that He will give us what we have requested (1John 5:14-15).
An effective prayer begins with trust in God and an awareness of His ways. There – a believer who gives up on prayer because our human limitations prevent fully understanding how it works. But those who stop our communicating with God miss out on the aweinspiring work of the Spirit. He directs our prayers, impresses upon our hurts the truth about what we have asked and ultimately opens our mends to God, (Rom. 8:28.) If God will’s is our true desires, then we’ll be sensitive to our Holy Spirit’s guidance. He is our prayer link to the heav-

enly Father, and where He leads, we must follow. He responds to our prayers – we must love Him just because He is God. Consider the basis of your love of God, and ask Him to help you unconditionally. (Isaiah 38:5) We never pray alone, because Jesus is praying for us. He hears us as we pray, and speaks to the Father on our behalf. Jesus is a perfect prayer for us with immeasurable kindness. His prayers for us are beautiful beyond Continued on page 15

Looking Back Continued from page 1
This writer has read some of those telegrams. They were short and intense. “Dear Mr. Mrs. Brown, your son was wounded in action in Europe, he is now in a military hospital.” Some telegrams told parents a son was a prisoner of war, the most dreaded being “your son was lost in action.” Tension was a part of daily life if a son or daughter was serving in the Armed Services. I was really moved when I saw the WAC uniform worn by Ms. Rosa Horn in 1943 in the new Bath Museum. My mind took me back to my World War II memories when I saw men and women leaving for service from my old neighborhood. The U.S. Military would peak at 14 million men, there was a drain on manpower. The government organized the W.A.C.-the Women’s Army Corp and the Waves of the Navy and Marines. Two hundred thousand women joined the services. Their efforts have been forgotten. They were given many non-combat assign-
ments to free men to serve overseas. The training included using a rifle. Many college campuses became training grounds for the women. Ms. Horn’s uniform salutes all the women who left their jobs and careers to serve the nation. They were volunteers who placed their country before their careers. We will conclude this series in two weeks.

Local TruBlue Business partners To provide Contractor services And guidance For the Ride for Freedom’s Veteran Build Project Submitted by KELLIE MAY When members of the Veteran Build Project team met Bud, the veteran they wanted to honor in 2019, they were struck not only by the depth of his continuous service, but also by the opportunity they had to help someone who had given so much. But Bud’s home needed more than the project team had completed in the past – and they needed professional guidance and assistance. Now, with TruBlue Total House Care of Easton on their side and their volunteers ready to go, the Veteran Build Project team is ready to move forward with the project. The Veteran Build Project and TruBlue will be teaming up with more than 20 volunteers, over three visits, to make significant repairs on Bud’s home, including bathroom and flooring repairs, widening doorways and hallways to make room for a wheelchair, making handicap-accessible upgrades and more. The largest project date is Saturday, August 3, at Bud’s house in Coplay. The work is expected to be completed between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. If you are interested in attending, please contact Scotty Coyle with the Veteran Build Project and Bethany Church at 610-395-3613 or John Brethour with TruBlue of Easton at either 484-207-0060 or Easton@ TruBlueHouseCare.com. “Our organization has built a strong rapport with the veteran community and, when we were looking for a veteran to honor in 2019, the Order of the Purple Heart introduced us to Bud.

Obituaries Jasmine Lea Hoskins
Jasmine Lea Hoskins, 40, of Mount Bethel, formerly of Moore Township, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, July 21, 2019. Born in Allentown, she was the daughter of Gary G. Hoskins, of Moore Township, and the late Linda J. (Botsch) Hoskins. She was a graduate of Northampton High School, class of 1997, and also attended Northampton Community College and Moravian College. Serving others was an important aspect of Jasmine’s life and she was very proud of her work at Bloom Creative Studio, a supportive workplace for women leaving lives of addiction and violence, located in Bangor, where she taught art. She also enjoyed her work at Genesis Farm in Blairstown, NJ. Recently, Jasmine became a certified yoga instructor, which accentuated her love of nature and the outdoors. Survivors: In addition to her loving father, Gary, she is survived by a brother, Garrett Hoskins, of Moore Township. Services: A private celebration of life service will be held at the convenience of the family. There will be no calling hours. Arrangements have been entrusted to the George G. Bensing Funeral Home, Inc., Village of Moorestown – Bath. Contributions: In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be offered to Bloom Creative Studio, 32 Broadway, Bangor, PA 18013.

line for his country and for his community. He has sacrificed so much and he deserves to be taken care of, honored and respected. This project is just one small thing we can do to show our appreciation for all he has done for us. He’s a superhero!” Coyle said. Bud is a decorated United States Army Veteran and a former Philadelphia Police Motorcycle Officer. He was a Ranger in the Army in Vietnam and then served in Korea as a Staff Sergeant. During his time with the Army he was awarded the Purple Heart, the Silver Star and the Bronze Star. He also has four commendations from his time as a police officer – two Heroism Commendations, one Bravery Commendation and one Valor Commendation. Bud continues to serve his community in many ways, especially through the Military Order of the Purple Heart – he does the Monday Coffee for veterans at the Veterans Administration and he’s the JROTC and ROTC Coordinator for the organization. The Veteran Build Project is led by Bethany Church in Macungie, Pa. Bethany Church hosts an annual Ride for Freedom and Tribute to Our Freedom Concert to honor and promote veteran ministries in the Lehigh Valley. All Veteran Build Projects are supported through community fundraisers and donations and projects are generally completed by teams of community volunteers. Coyle said they needed to raise $2,000 between the organi-

zation’s motorcycle ride and concert to make all the repairs and upgrades they wanted to for Bud, but even with the money, they couldn’t move forward without professional guidance. “This is a bigger, more complex project than we’ve done in the past – this isn’t building a ramp or mowing the lawn. There are more strict building and housing codes to follow and we want to make sure the repairs were done right. Without TruBlue, we wouldn’t be moving forward with this project. We needed their professional guidance and assistance for this to be possible,” Coyle said. TruBlue is a full-service company that provides handyman, house cleaning, emergency repairs, yard/lawn care and seasonal services that are perfect for busy families, seniors and anyone who want the comforts of their own home without worrying about critical property maintenance. TruBlue of Easton serves Bethlehem, Easton, Hellertown, Nazareth, Pen Argyl, Riegelsville, Wind Gap and the surrounding areas. “I heard about the project through a mutual connection at a local BNI meeting and I thought this would be a great opportunity for TruBlue to make a difference for someone who has dedicated so much of their life to serving our country and our community. This particular project has more detailed handyman work as well as projects that need to meet housing codes, so it was important that the volunteers had a professional to work with throughout the project. We are thrilled to be able to provide that service,” Brethour said. To assist those with ongoing home care needs or who want to take property management off their plates entirely, TruBlue
has a monthly House Care Plus program, which enables clients to hire TruBlue to provide regular, monthly maintenance. TruBlue also works with homeowners, realtors and rental property owners who need to quickly get homes move-in ready and keep them maintained, and has commercial services for business clients. On TruBlue’s side, this project is part of their philanthropic TruBlue to the Rescue program. As part of TruBlue to the Rescue, Brethour is donating the technician’s time and expertise, both during the build date and on any time needed to build plans and estimate materials. “It’s important for every worthwhile organization to find ways to get involved in the community and give back, which is why we created TruBlue to the Rescue in the first place. Veterans hold a special place in our hearts – many of our franchisees are veterans and we work with veterans every day – so this project is particularly special,” TruBlue President Greg Platz said. “We’re looking forward to seeing this project come together and we’re excited that John had the opportunity to get involved.” All TruBlue employees are licensed, bonded and insured. To learn more about TruBlue of Easton, call 484-207-0060, email Easton@TruBlueHouseCare.com or visit http://www.TruBlueEaston.com. If you are interested in donating to the Veteran Build Project, there is a designated fund set up for the Ride for Freedom at Bethany Church, Macungie. All money donated to that fund is spent directly on helping veterans – there are no staff costs or overhead. To contact Bethany Church, visit https://www.bethanyumchurch.com/.

Missing Heaven by 18”
Can a person get within 18 inches of heaven and still miss it? That’s the distance between the head and the heart. A mere intellectual, mental, or head knowledge of Jesus Christ without a heart acceptance and personal relationship with Him will never take a person to heaven! The Bible promises “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9-10). Confess means “to admit to be true” or to profess what is truly believed in the heart. For instance, in John 14:6 we read that Jesus is the only way to Heaven (see www.naog.ws/theway.htm). To be saved, we must do more than just believe that truth intellectually—we must act on it with all of our heart confessing sincerely that Jesus is our Lord (or boss)! In the process, we must see ourselves as God sees us—in need of salvation, utterly lost and undone, without excuse and without hope. Then, in recognition of our sinfulness, and in true repentance, we must cry out to God asking for His forgiveness of sin and for His Son, Jesus, to save us and come into our hearts. We experience the new birth (John 3) when we accept Him into our hearts! That is much more than just giving simple mental assent to the truth of salvation! Don’t miss heaven by just 18 inches! Are you sure of your personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Why not settle the matter in your heart once and for all right now? --Written by Pastor Daniel E. Lundmark

Scouts from Troop 43 selected During Order of the Arrow Call Out Ceremony
submitted by MICHELE MORROW During their week at Camp Minsi, three Scouts from Troop 43, Sacred Heart in Bath, were selected to be a part of the Order of the Arrow: David Heintzelman (3rd from left), Aidan Henry (4th from left), and Andrew Getz (far right). The Order of the Arrow (OA) is the Boy Scouts
of America’s National Honor Society for Scouts and adult Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives and are elected by their peers. Correction to last week's article: The list of boys from Troop 43 for the OA Call Out included Aidan Gallagher instead of David Heintzelman in error.

The most power a Christian can do is pray. It’s funny because when we have a problem, we make reading the bible our last resort or give up on reading the Bible daily altogether. It should be human tendency to want to speak to our Father. Through His answers, we gain greater faith in Him and according to His will the next time we have a need.

Submitted by ABIGAIL PEPITONE According to government estimates, Medicare lost $52 billion to fraud, abuse and improper billing in FY2017. Medicare fraud typically involves rogue health care providers or medical suppliers who bill the program for services, equipment or medication that they don’t actually provide, or else inflate the cost of those items. Some will even falsify patients’ diagnoses to justify unnecessary tests, surgeries and other procedures or write prescriptions for patients they’ve never examined. Others use genuine patient information, sometimes obtained through identity theft, to create fake claims. One of the most effective ways to combat against Medicare fraud is to review your Medicare statements and make sure the dates and services listed are correct. 99 If something $ doesn’t look right, call your medical provider’s office. Be a fraud fighter. If you can spot a scam, you can stop a scam. 3 $ 1200 99 $19 Visit the AARP Fraud Watch Network at www.aarp.org/ fraudwatchnetwork or call the AARP Fraud Watch Network Helpline at 1-877-908-3360 -1 to report a scam or get $help 499 if you’ve fallen victim.

The dragons Are coming For you, are You in? Submitted by ANN FLOOD
A new kind of festival is coming, and it includes dragons. The inaugural Lauren’s Hope Dragon Boat Festival is a boatracing event that will offer food, vendors, drinks and games on September 15 at Evergreen Lake. Lauren’s Hope is a tax-exempt, non-profit charity that benefits children with brain injuries throughout the Lehigh Valley and the surrounding areas. The proceeds from this event are going toward their campaign to build an adapted playground for children of all abilities. Ann Flood, the festival’s event chair, is expecting a large turnout of competitors and spectators. The festival will be free for spectators. Dragon Boating is a 2,500-year-old sport, originating in Southern China and is one of the fastest growing international team water sports in the world. Ready to make a team? Teams are currently registering online at www.laurenshopefoundation. com. Each team consists of 20 paddlers, one drummer and a professional steerer. Each team is allowed five alternates. No experience is needed. Everyone has the opportunity to participate in this adventurous day. Children can even join in on
the dragon fun. “There will be a children’s tent called Dragon Land with lots of fun for the whole family, something for everyone,” Flood said. The event will begin at 9 a.m. and will run until 3 p.m. Opening ceremony will begin with the Dotting of the Eye of the dragon this signifies the awakening of the dragon. All teams will compete in a minimum of two races, advancing until the final heat is determined. Each boat has a drummer who provides the cadence for the paddlers to work in sync during the race. “It’s the best team building opportunity around. It’s not about being the fastest or the strongest. The success of the boat depends upon how well the team works together. That’s why anyone can participate from 15-80 years old,” Flood said. “The best part is that it’s about people working together to help brain injured children.” Dynamic Dragon Boat Racing from Knoxville, TN, is a nationally recognized expert in dragon boat event management. They will be providing the boats, professional steerers and executing the official timing of the race. “If you haven’t seen a dragon boat festival yet, you’ll have to come out and see it for yourself,” Flood said. If you would like to put a team in the race or looking for more information, go to www. laurenshopefoundation.com by September 1. The festival will be free for spectators.
