3rd Annual Commit to be Fit gets underway

May 12, 2012 by  

On Saturday, May 12th, Council member Ruben Wills is sponsoring the 3rd Annual “Commit to be Fit” event at the Baisley Pond Park located at N. Conduit Avenue, between 116 Avenue and 150 Street and Suptin Boulevard and Baisley Boulevardd S in Flushing, New York. This event will run from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

The Baisley Pond Park is used by many residents as a place to play and have fun and this event is no different. Usually the park is used for tennis, rollerblading, basketball, and family picnics. Last year, the city workers discovered an American Mastodon with five molars buried in the sediment and will soon be unearthing the rest. This event involves “getting fit”, and to do this the organizers are planning to have an active family afternoon. This fun event will include a variety of music and family games, including potato sack races, tugs-of-war, rock climbing, throws, tosses, and other games. Today, there is a sculpture of the Mastodon in the Suptin playground to commemorate the discovery, as it makes a rather unique playmate for the children.

This park has a history that dates back thousands of years, so it is not so surprising that the Mastodon was found here after the retreat of the ice age more than 10,000 years ago.

Flyer printing to promote this great fitness event probably was prepared by local printing companies to ensure the entire community can plan to attend. There is no admission fee to attend this event.
