On July 4th, 2014 we held our eleventh Stonington Six/Powell 10K, an annual road race. This race draws more than 100 runners, ranging in age from 4 to 75, with two courses, a 1.4 mile fun run and a 6.2 mile 10K. Participants can choose to run or walk the course of their choice. We encourage local business to help sponsor this race and in return their business is advertised on T-shirts, which each runner receives at the end of the race. In addition, due to the generosity of local individuals and businesses there are prizes awarded to the top race finishers.

We currently house the local Farmer's Market with vendors each week that provide the community with locally organic grown foods and goods. This event has been a huge success for farmers the community and for us.
 
Other Programs and Activities

We have held instruction in cheering; scrap booking; karate; tumbling; line dancing; board games; drawing; and various other activities during school vacation weeks and throughout the year.

Community members continue to rent the facility for parties, shows, and receptions. Other events held were birthday bash celebrations, craft fairs and we were able to provide a Hunter's Safety course; Dog Obedience classes; as well as provided ice skating and hockey lessons.

We continue to try to provide stimulating activities and events for the entire community, and are always receptive to program suggestions. Please contact Jeannie Hatch or Bobbi Billings with your ideas.
