Because so many events have been cancelled throughout the region this summer, the Wallingford Day committee is encouraging residents and businesses to join a fun and safe celebration honoring our community by decorating/painting pallets for display on Wallingford Day – Saturday, July 18 – throughout town. Thanks to a donation from Tractor Supply, there are 30 pallets available starting Monday, June 15 at the town garage at 170 River Street under the sand shed. But first, please notify the town administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org or Maria French at Wallingfordday@gmail.com that you will be taking a pallet so you can be added to a map being prepared by Sparkle Barn to use for a driving tour (because we hope folks in East Wallingford and South Wallingford will join in). Please notify us by June 27 if you plan to participate. You are welcome to use your own pallet, but please notify the town administrator or Maria French of the address where your pallet will be displayed so you can be added to the map. Be creative, humorous, send a message of support to the community…whatever you like. Just be sure your pallet is completed by Wallingford Day on July 18. If you have paint or Art supplies you are willing to share, please post the information on Front Porch Forum or the Wallingford Day Facebook page..or email email@example.com There will be recognition for the funniest, most colorful, most patriotic, most unusual and Wallingford Spirit pallets.
Finally, thanks to the Proctor Library for initiating this idea and being supportive of Wallingford starting a similar project.
