The Saturday Slip N' Slide event was started by Steve and Shelley Frody, life-long residents of Georgetown Township and real-estate brokers.  They began the event 10 years ago to bring the community together and also give back in a constructive way.  

With the real estate industry booming, this year, the Saturday Slip N' Slide is brought to you by Never the Same, a national youth ministry organization.  Never the Same started in 2000 and continues to help students grow in their faith through many different avenues.  Head to their website to learn more.  neverthesame.com  This year, all proceeds will go to support the ministries of Never The Same.  

 

Never the Same will continue to partner with City2Shore and the Frody's to continue the success of this event.  

Enjoy giant slip n slides down the hill of the Soccer Bowl during the summer!  Bring your family and friends to this community sponsored event and enjoy a day filled with fun! 

 

This is a kid-friendly event for families to enjoy.  Never The Same's desire is to give back to the community and show people that Georgetown Township is a great place to live, work, and raise a family!  We are grateful for local businesses who partner along side us to help bring this event to the community.

 

We will have four 40x100 foot plastic water slides down the south side of the Soccer Bowl.  There will be a number of local food and refreshment vendors as well as a sponsor tent to learn more about businesses in our area.   There will also be a variety of children's activities throughout the park including such things as bounce houses, dunk tanks, kiddy water park, games and more!

 

Safety is our top priority throughout the event.  We partner with the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department, local ambulance services, and the local Fire Department to ensure the safety of all our guests.  Nearly 150 volunteers are recruited and trained to help the day flow smoothly.  The Sheriff's office monitors weather conditions and notifies us when severe weather is approaching so we can alert guests as necessary.  First Aid volunteers are present and clearly identified to help with cuts, abrasions, sunburns, etc.
