Saturday is Betty Carey Day

  • Jul. 30, 2004 10:00 a.m.

Submitted by Pat Carrie Smith-The first annual Betty Carey Day will be celebrated in Sandspit on Saturday, July 31. Last year on Betty’s 89th birthday, a large crowd turned out for a surprise party. Out of the amazing energy from this event came the idea of creating a Betty Carey Day, where the town would gather to continue Betty’s tradition of keeping the streets of Sandspit clean, a tradition she has carried on for many years. This year, for Betty’s 90th birthday, a potluck celebration will be held after the morning cleanup. Music and other festivities are planned.
Everyone is welcome to either or both of these events! Meet at the Sandspit community hall at 10 am for the town cleanup, and the celebration will begin at 3 pm.
