From: Caroline Cicerchi <firstname.lastname@example.org>Subject: Invitation – 5th Annual Northern Olentangy Watershed (NOW) FestivalDate: February 23, 2018 at 3:37:26 PM ESTTo: Caroline Cicerchi <email@example.com>Hello,You are receiving this email because you have participated in the Northern Olentangy Watershed (NOW) Festival in recent years, or your business/organization is relevant to land stewardship that would fit in with the festival’s goals. If we have not yet met, I am the new Watershed Coordinator with the City of Delaware and will be coordinating the event. The 5th annual NOW Festival will take place on Saturday, June 16th from 12-3 p.m. at Mingo Park in Delaware (500 E. Lincoln Ave., Delaware OH 43015). The festival is meant to educate the public, encourage outdoor recreation, and celebrate the “scenic” designation of the Olentangy River. I would like to extend an invitation to participate in this year’s event! There will be a couple of boat launches, food trucks, various booths, a rubber duck race, a macroinvertebrate sampling demonstration, raffle items including locally painted rain barrels, and more. The event is free and open to the public.
Some logistics: Tables are not provided, we will be outdoors (not under a shelter) so bring a tent if preferred, the set-up begins at 10:30 a.m., and tearing down begins around 3:15 p.m. In the event of rain, we will be inside the gymnasium at Mingo Park and some of the activities will be re-scheduled (i.e. boat launch, duck race, etc.). A flyer is in the works and will be distributed for you to cross promote if interested.
If you are interested in participating, please provide the following information:– Confirmation of attendanceIf known:– What activity you will be doing (this can be determined at a later date). Similar to previous years, a BINGO Card-type activity will be distributed to each festival attendee. To encourage the public to visit each booth, the goal is to have a relatively simple activity they can engage in, and once completed they can receive a stamp/sticker from you to put on their card verifying they have visited your table. Those that completely fill out their BINGO cards can enter them into a raffle for prizes at the end of the festival. See attached BINGO card sample for reference.– How many t-shirts (short sleeved) you will need for those manning your tablePlease confirm your attendance at your earliest convenience. I would like to have everyone’s t-shirt needs and table activities established by April if possible. Feel free to contact me with any questions, and thank you for your consideration!Caroline Cicerchi
