Excitement is in the air as the Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce prepares for the 8th Annual Clemmons Community Day. The towns of Lewisville and Clemmons are known for their commitment to community. This event has a strong history of fun, excitement, and a renewal of community spirit. It’s little wonder that thousands of residents are excited about this annual event.
Because Clemmons Community Day originated out of a heartfelt love for the area, and a desire to create something for everyone, Jody Peske, one of the founders of Clemmons Community Day, understandably feels a great sense of pride in how far Clemmons Community Day has come! “This event is a labor of love for all of us,” said Jody. “And it has been since Day 1. We are so grateful for the dozens of volunteers and civil servants who make this day come together.” Indeed, the event has grown from 50 vendors to 130 vendors in eight years!
Many contribute to the event’s success, including the Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce Director, Ginny Chase. “This is a Chamber event, and while many may think of a Chamber event as synonymous with business suits and board meetings, Clemmons Community Day is anything but that! It’s a celebration of the towns our Chamber supports—Lewisville and Clemmons. It’s an opportunity for families to come together, enjoy fun activities, and learn a bit more about the people and businesses who make Lewisville and Clemmons unique.”
The planners of Clemmons Community Day know it’s important to offer activities that everyone can enjoy. Family-friendly activities include the rock climbing wall, super slide, bounce house, face painting, and the annual talent show! The Jerry Long YMCA will present a Zumba demo, and Kimberly Van Scoy will be emceeing the event for the fifth year. Make sure you check out the Sheriff’s new department bus which will be on display!
While admission is free to the event, a donation to the Clemmons Food Pantry is encouraged. For the second year, Forsyth Magazines is supporting this effort by offering a door prize ticket for every donation made to the Clemmons Food Pantry. The prize board will be in the Forsyth Magazines tent. (SPECIAL NOTE: Clemmons Food Pantry always accepts canned and boxed food, but they are also in need of adult hygiene items.)
Parking won’t be a problem, thanks to Wake Forest Baptist Health Medical Plaza-Clemmons and Black Tie Transportation! Wake Forest Baptist Health Medical Plaza-Clemmons has generously offered the use of their parking lot and Black Tie Transportation will have a shuttle bus going back and forth between the parking lot and the Jerry Long Family YMCA.
Clemmons Community Day takes place rain or shine! And this year’s event promises more of everything! More vendors! More activities! More fun! It’s going to be a great day of family fun you won’t want to miss! Make sure you’ve marked your calendar!
