Invitation to dunk Charles Russ at Forget Me Knot Walk

Joyce McDowell sent us an update below detailing all the fun activities young and old alike will be able to enjoy at the Saturday, May 9 Forget Me Knot Walk we previously publicized here. Bless his heart, our beloved building inspector Charles Russ has volunteered to spend the day over a dunk tank as hundreds, maybe thousands of Norwood property owners finally get to take their best shot at him for this worthwhile cause! Click here, if you haven’t pre-registered yet for the walk.

Thank you so much for including us in your web site. We are excited that Mayor Williams will be there for the opening ceremony to proclaim May 9th the Caleb Tate Fuller Foundation's Forget Me Knot Walk day. We have also added a dunk tank to the events for the day. Charles Russ, property maintenance inspector for the Norwood Building Department invites all landlords and property owners to take a shot at him in the dunk tank.

We want to emphasize that it is helpful if participants can pre-register for the walking event but it is not a requirement. Registration starts at 7am. Even if you are not able to walk, please join us for the opening ceremony at 8am, carnival from 10 to 3, memorial balloon launch at 12 noon where anyone can honor a loved one that has been special in their life. This is followed by the cookout lunch with burgers and hot dogs. We'll have a dunk tank, moon walk, lots of other carnival games like tip a troll, kerplunk, roller bowler, skee ball, putt-putt and much more.

We're hoping to get a great turnout for this event. We encourage everyone to join us for the day or any part of the day!
