The Great Lemonade Race 2013 Post event highlights

The event raised aprox. $1200.00!

It is hard to believe how perfect this years event was. Not 2 weeks before, our region experienced the worst flood in recorded history. The bridge seen in the photo above (McCutcheon bridge) was underwater and Lambert road (below) had extreme flood damage.

The weather in April had been down right miserable as well! Initially the event had been cancelled, but event organizer Jennifer McMurray Blanchard (below) decided not to give up on the chosen day....and what great decision!

Event day weather was probably the best it had been in the 5 years the race has run. With record high temperatures, the homemade (on the spot) lemonade was going fast and with the record crowd in attendance, it was sure not to last!

A HUGE thank you to all who attended and supported the event,

it wouldn't have happened without you!!!!

Local resident Jennifer Blanchard created this "fun for the whole family" event 5 years ago. It is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors, take a stroll along the picturesque Black river in Vankoughnet, enjoy a nice BBQ with our friendly, welcoming community....and have the best homemade lemonade you ever tasted!
