Announcing Our 2nd Annual Illegal Sign Scavenger Hunt!

Bandit SignAre you as tired of these illegal ‘bandit’ signs as we are?

They’re basically pieces of trash nailed to telephone poles and they make our neighborhood look junky. So that’s why the JAC is announcing our:

2nd Annual

Illegal Sign Scavenger Hunt

 

How does it work?

Illegal Sign Scavenger Hunt: At our next meeting (Tuesday, June 3rd at 7pm at the Juniata Golf Course) we’re giving away a $75 Walmart gift card to the person who brings in the most illegal signs. Second place is a $50 Walmart gift card and third place is a $25 Walmart gift card.

Remember: Use proper safety equipment to take down the signs and only remove the ones you can reach easily. Scouts honor that we get all the signs from Juniata Park first (we can take down other neighborhood’s once Juniata is clear.)

Last year, our first scavenger hunt gathered over 2,000 of these illegal signs.We’re hoping for an even bigger haul this year!  Enjoy! See everyone at our next meeting!

This Saturday: It’s Time for Juniata Fest!

Juniata Fest Logo

It’s our 5th annual business fair put on by the Juniata Action Committee.  Every year the free food, entertainment, face painting and other free give-aways attract hundreds of Juniata residents to this event. In a first for Juniata, this year our fest will include re-enactors from the Middle Ages that will be demonstrating dancing and sword fighting from the Renaissance era. It’s an awesome chance for Juniata to come together! Don’t miss it!

Here’s the flyer that was featured as a full page ad in the Juniata News this week and is getting distributed in Juniata this week:

5th Annual Juniata Fest: Better Every Year

Juniata Fest Logo

Juniata Fest is here again! Businesses, organizations and hundreds of Juniata residents will be gathering for our annual tradition of Juniata Fest. Thank you to those of you who partner with us with generously and faithfully every year to help make this possible. Juniata Fest is our community’s only business fair and one of the few community wide, community unifying events that we have. We couldn’t do it without you.
This year, at the Juniata Boy’s and Girls Club on September 28th, 10am-2pm, we’ll be hosting the same great event. They’ll be tons of free stuff, music, entertainment, and hundreds of contacts for your organization. But of course, every year we also make a few changes to keep moving forward, so here’s a few things that will be new this year:

  • New Sponsorship Levels–As you’ll see on the attached sponsor letter, we created new sponsorship levels to give our most generous partners more visibility.  We only have four available sponsorships at Level 1 and Level 2, so please contact me if your organization is interested in one of these. They’ll be given out on a first come first serve basis.
  • Middle Ages Reenactment Troupe–In the past, Phillie Phanatic and Swoop have dropped by to visit us at Juniata Fest. And we’ve also enjoyed the large petting zoo that’s come for many years. But this year we’re excited to announce that we’ve booked a group that does demonstrations from the Middle Ages. Members of the SCA (sca.org) will be there to show us fighting, dancing and more from the Middle Ages. It should be a great time and great experience for everyone who comes!

 Click here: Juniata Fest Invite 2013 for the sponsorship form and all the details. If you still have questions, email juniataaction@live.com

The deadline for sponsors to sign up is September 1st.
Thanks in advance for being a part of Juniata Fest! I look forward to hearing from you.
