Enon Baptist Church Sponsors 25th Annual Sonshine Saturday

Posted by: swright in Community 1 year, 10 months ago

Enon Baptist Church in Valdese has hosted “Sonshine Saturday” for 25 years for children and parents that live at our Foster Care Community, in Nebo, North Carolina.  On Saturday May 30th, Sonshine Saturday was held on the church grounds and 150-200 people enjoyed this fun filled day!   Events included a watermelon eating contest, sack race, huge waterslide, obstacle course, dunking booth and a wheel barrow race.  A delicious cookout meal was served and great fun was had by all.  Southmountain is so grateful to Enon Baptist Church, all the volunteers that made this day possible, and for hosting this event for the past 25 years!
