SSYC aerial photo 1200x372

A great family event was held in perfect weather. The air was filled with pirate music and sea songs provide by Vince Verhasselt. Laura Wehnes coordinated the event with a water balloon toss, pirate bike and wagon parade, treasure hunt, carnival games, face painting and tattoos and the pirate invasion.

The grounds were filled with various games from ring toss to bowling games. Judy Berkowski, Jennifer Murphy, and Lisa Roberts ran the games for the kids. The games kept the kids very busy.

Jacquelyn Komas, a SSYC junior, was in charge of the face painting and temporary tattoos.

Tom Gale took on the daring job of the water balloon toss. He set up an area and gathered a group of boys and girls to test their ability to throw and catch water balloons. Tom never showed any fear as the balloons flew by him with the threat of being soaked.

The wagon parade was lead by Don Rychlinski and judged by Sue Wagner, Heidi Gaertner and Sandy Dziubek. The responsibility of picking a winner was very difficult as all of the entrants were very competitive.

Ken Dziubek was outstanding on the microphone for the entire event, but especially during the pirate invasion. He kept the children’s attention with his “authentic” pirate jargon.

Free cotton candy was provide to the children and they did, indeed, partake of it. 

The pirate invasion was the premier event of the day. Doug Gallus and very pirate dressed crew on Musketeer 2 did an on the water invasion of South Shore Yacht Club. Mike Dziubek and his crew of lads and lasses shot cannon, branded swords and “Arrgged” the evil pirates away. With all of the smoke and cannon fire it looked very realistic. 

Chef Sam served up a buffet of Turkey Legs, Macaroni and Cheese, Baked Beans, Watermelon Wedges and Buried Treasure Dirt Cake.

Music followed by TikiTim. Many thanks to Laura Wehnes and her crew of many volunteers who made this event a success.
