Fay Bond Turns 100 - Sept 29

You’re invited to a block party at Lou Mac Park, Friday, September 29 at 5p to help Fay Bond celebrate 100 years on the planet.

Gather at the park by 5p to watch Fay’s grand entrance. Dance to music Hoff n’ Finch, TerryLynn Melody, and DJ Cheryl Thompson.

A small donation will get you hot dogs from PAWS (the Pamlico Animal Welfare Society), hamburgers and sodas from the Rotary Club, and cake from the Women’s Club.

NO gifts – your presence is enough. If you insist on buying anything, Fay and family emphasize that cards or gift cards to Dollar General for turtle food are welcomed.

Fay Bond has been a part of the Oriental community for over 50 years and is known locally as the watermelon lady, the turtle lady, and as a senior Olympic Gold medalist.

Lou Mack Park is located along the water at South Avenue and Freemason Street. In case of rain, party will be held at the Oriental Woman’s Club.
