Last ski show, vitality project breakfast on tap for weekend

Published 9:15 am Thursday, September 3, 2009

Summer events wind down this weekend as school starts next week.

The Bayside Skiers Water Ski Show Team will present its final “Bayside Under the Big Top” show of the season at 2 p.m. Monday at Edgewater Park. Pre-show activities, featuring the younger skiers, start at 1:15 p.m. There is no admission charge, but the club does pass the hat to help defray expenses.

Also on Monday, “Good Morning America” will be back in Albert Lea to continue its coverage of the AARP/Blue Zones Vitality Project. The “Good Morning America” crew will join the community for a Labor Day Vitality Project breakfast picnic potluck at Pioneer Park, with a live shot airing sometime between the 7 and 8 a.m. hour. The public is invited to arrive at the park by 6:30 a.m. People are encouraged to wear their Vitality Project T-shirts, to bring a picnic blanket and to bring signs that indicate the names of their walking moais. For the breakfast potluck, people should use their creativity and knowledge of longevity foods to create a breakfast dish.
