2008 Annual Norwood Day at Coney Island on July 23rd

Wednesday, July 23rd will mark the 73rd time the Norwood Business and Professional Women have sponsored the always fun-filled Norwood Day at Coney Island. The event, which follows the day after The Norwood Day Parade, is the club’s main fundraiser. Member Laura Hobbs says that, “Besides our two scholarships for girls graduating from Norwood High School, we also give a lot of money to local non-profit organizations, including Norwood Service League, Norwood Food Closet, all the schools arts organizations, and the YMCA."

The Norwood Business and Professional Women’s website has all the event information. Tickets for Norwood Day are currently on sale in the Treasurer’s Office at City Hall, 1st floor where water bills are paid, and Donna Laake tells us raffle tickets can be purchased at the Norwood Health Dept. at 2059 Sherman Avenue. Raffle tickets are only $1.00 for a strip of five, and you don’t have to be present to win. The list of prizes includes a Nintendo Wii system, Reds tickets, hotel package, and even more prizes will be added because of recent donations.
