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 eleven years ago to bring the community together and also give back in a constructive way.  

With the real estate industry booming, the Saturday Slip N' Slide is now 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.  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.   Their 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 alongside us to put this event on! 


During this event, we will have four 40x100-foot plastic water slides down the south side of the Soccer Bowl at Rosewood Park.  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 things such 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.
