This year’s edition of Magic in Minetto, to be held in River View Park on Aug. 11 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., will include several contributions of Minetto United Methodist Church people.
William Martin, R.N., has worked with Ellen Lazarek, collaboration manager of health education, and Shannon Ensley, senior health educator for the Comprehensive Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program, both of Oswego County Opportunities, to plan a health fair. It will be located inside the Minetto Town Hall and will offer a variety of health and wellness educational materials as well as free blood pressure screening.
The Minetto Monkeys 4 H Club, under the leadership of Jennifer Reese, will be conducting a carnival at the Methodist Church to raise funds for the Congenital Neutrapena Association.
There will be a variety of games and activities for young people including the making of root beer floats with ingredients provided by Stewarts. The club members range in age from 4 to 12.
Several members of the church will be staffing a food booth in the park offering hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, coneys, sausages, chips, bottled water, and sodas. The sandwiches may be had with toppings of sauerkraut, onions and peppers, or Texas hot sauce. Food will be available from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. or as long as supplies last.
Others from the church have been involved in the planning of Magic in Minetto and will be at the event to work with crafts and other amusements.
