The deal is to bring $2 or two canned goods and get two throws in return. All money and canned goods go to the Vandalia Food Pantry.
The Parks and Recreation Department encourages residents every year to recycle their trees. Trees are left in the lot in the southwest corner of the Sports Complex.
“Even though it might sound like a silly contest, there are actually some sound physical fitness principles at work,” said Recreation Superintendent Jeff Kreill. “Contestants will have to utilize proper form, strength and coordinated major muscle groups to put together a winning toss.”
“These are all things, by the way, that can be improved through regular workouts at our Recreation Center.”
You can join the fun on Saturday, Jan. 19, from noon to 2 p.m. near the Sports Complex Field 1 at the Rec Center located on Stonequarry Road. All ages can participate.
