At long last, the weekend is finally here: It’s time for the annual Play and Stay Weekend at the Pemi River Campground in Thornton.

Things start up on Friday night, and we’ve rented the full field for both Friday and Saturday. In recognition of our 75th anniversary, we’ve set the cost at $7.50 per night, per adult.

If you haven’t already RSVP’d, you can do so by emailing Tammy Clark at tclark@seiu1984.org. You do not need to contact the campground.

“We’re really excited for this weekend, and we think this will be the best Play and Stay Weekend yet,” Clark said. There’s plenty to do at the campground itself, and Clark said they’ve planned some fun activities for kids of all ages.

In addition, they’ll have goodies to raffle off and one big new addition for this year. “We’ll have a ‘drive-in’ movie showing for the kids, complete with popcorn and drinks,” Clark said.

Clark and the other organizers — including Brenda Thomas, Rebecca Ladd, Cheryl Towne, Jim Nall and Brenda Poehler — are hard at work making final arrangements for the weekend.

As in previous years, there will be games available, and you can rent a kayak, canoe or tube to get out on the water (or just bring your own). You can check out the campground’s website to see all that they offer. Once again, there will be a potluck dinner on Saturday night that all are welcome to take part in.

“The weather looks just about perfect, so if you were on the fence about coming, you should definitely join us,” Clark said. “Just send me an email and come join the fun.”
