Centennial Event Planning February 9th, 2017

1/18/17

Good afternoon,

My name is Dean Doeling, and for the past 8 years I have helped bring the power of sport to kids all across the island of St. John through a community supported event I initiated called JUST PLAY under a program I spearheaded, Using Sport For Social Change.

With the support of St. John Community Foundation and the St. John Sports, Parks and Recs Department, we are planning to hold a Centennial Community Event on St. John in October 2017. This Centennial Community Event will be held separately from the annual Columbus Day "Just Play" event and our goal is to bring local talent, entertainment, food, crafts and Good Will to the whole community.

This Centennial "coming together" event is in the beginning stages of planning and we are asking for your support and input in order to make this a truly spectacular event that will bring the community together in fellowship and spirit.

On February 9th, an informational round table will be held from 7:00pm-9:00pm, at the St. John Parks and Recs building to start planning the St. John Centennial Event. A moment of your time is all that is needed and you don’t have to be there for the full time. Whether its your positive input, know-how, or just want to lend a hand before, during or after this event, we would love to hear from you! If you are unable to attend this meeting but would like to meet with us personally, please email me at islandsun40@yahoo.com.

This Centennial event, as with the "Just Play" event is all volunteer driven and funded by sponsors such as yourself. We continue to look for unique opportunities for St. Johnian's to give back to this beautiful island while gaining exposure for themselves, whether its a donation of time, talent, hard goods or donation dollars, everything helps.

'Right now we are looking for help in the following areas:

• Planning, facilitating and logistics to include space planning, production, staging, permits etc

• Entertainment- Historical speakers, poets, musicians, dance groups, DJ's, other talent

• Food venders (possibly even a "cook off" of some sort)

• Vendors of local goods, crafts etc

• Any other ideas that you have to make this event even more special.

As always, more information about me and my personal initiative can be found at www.usingsportforsocialchange.com Please consider helping us in this worthy cause to bring the community together through this Centennial Event.

Thank you.

Sincerely, Dean Doeling & Carolyn Eaton
