A group of community members from Thorndale are inviting all the village's residents — human, and otherwise — to the Thorndale town sign near the Nissouri Road/Thorndale Road stoplights for a group photo on Wednesday, June 4 at 6 p.m.
A nomination is being submitted on behalf of the village to the Kraft corporation's "Celebration Tour" promotion — the grand prize for which is $100,000 to reinvest in "places to play." A profile picture is required as part of the nomination.
"Wear your team jerseys, club uniforms, and/or active wear to show how physically active Thorndale is," enthuses a message from the community group. "Ball jerserys, soccer uniforms, ball hockey shirts, goalie equipment, etc. And be sure to bring your neighbour, your dog, calf, horse, whatever."
"We need Thorndale's spirit to shine through this photo and show that we aren't just any ol' small town."
