This free regional event also features a hot dog lunch and root beer floats starting at noon at the Sportsman’s Park Wabash Depot with the walk on Wabash Trace Nature Trail. Shenandoah Chamber & Industry Association, Depot Restaurant, Valley News, Eaton Corp., Wilson Ins. and many other volunteers host the celebration and walk on the Wabash Trace Nature Trail. Volunteers are needed to grill & serve free hot dogs, and chips, water and cookies starting at noon. Participants are encouraged to register. Forms are available at SCIA, Nishna Productions Inc. and the Depot Restaurant. Participants are also encouraged to wear their “Bridge to Understanding t-shirts from previous years. The event is for everyone disabled or not all can participate. Music, comedy and motivation will be provided by Kip Attaway at noon. Kip was born in Mount Pleasant, Texas and later moved to Idaho. He began to hang around with Pinto Bennett and Muzzie Braun. Attaway’s first LP release charted songs in the top 100 such as "Rock Springs to Cheyenne" and "Wild Western Wind Blown Band." He took his band to California and entered the Marlboro Country Music Talent Roundup and took first place. After the band split up Kip took up residence in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Kip is responsible for introducing various artists to some prominent writers. Since then Kip has released twelve more CDs and tours relentlessly. He has been a regular each year at the Depot Restaurant in Shenandoah. His solo career has evolved into a combination of comedy, music and mayhem. He has entertained all over the world, including Hawaii, Bermuda and Australia. He just finished a year long gig at a popular venue in Deadwood, S.D. Kip is a favorite at the Catch a Rising Star comedy club, and stays busy livening up the corporate party circuit with his parodies and impersonations poking fun at rock&roll and country music. He is also the father of a disabled daughter, Jessie who will join us this year for the event. The walk on the trail will begin at approximately 1 p.m. Participants will walk or ride in wheel chairs or golf carts to the Nishnabotna Bridge. The Depot Restaurant staff and friends will serve free root beer floats at the turn around point on the bridge. “Everyone from the surrounding area is welcome to attend this special event, said SCIA Marketing Director Shelly Warner. “It’s a fun afternoon of music and exercise on the trail. We also need volunteers to assist with setup, cleanup, food service and assisting on the trail.” Volunteers can help setup beginning at 11 a.m., grill hot dogs and serve the food, distribute backpacks, and assist the disabled on the trail. Golf carts and drivers are also needed to help those who can’t walk the course. Wheel chairs are welcome and can easily go on the paved trail. Contact the Chamber if you can help in anyway, 246-3455. All participants need to fill out a form with a release signature before the event at SCIA, 619 W. Sheridan Ave. or on the day of the event.
