Albion residents, businesses and organizations are invited to participate in a special display contest for the 2010 Bike Ride Across Nebraska (BRAN).
Albion will be one of the overnight stops for BRAN on June 10, and displays will use the ride theme, “2010 Space Cowboy.”
Members of the Albion BRAN Community Decorating Committee said the contest will be held May 21 through June 10. Participants are encouraged to create a lawn, window, or sidewalk display to celebrate the BRAN stop in Albion.
Entries can incorporate themes such as cycling or the “2010 Space Cowboy” BRAN tag line, however there is no limit on size, space or creativity. Prizes will be awarded in residential, commercial, and civic categories.
Winners will be notified on June 4, and awards will be presented during the evening BRAN festivities on June 10 at the Boone County Fairgrounds.
Registration forms can be picked up at the Chamber of Commerce Office, Farm Bureau Financial Services, Junction 14-91, Gragert’s Market, ThriftyWay or the Albion News.
Registration deadline is May 21. Registration forms will also be available in upcoming issues of the Albion News.
Anyone interested in volunteering for the Community Decorating Committee can contact Rori Erickson at 402-395-6363 or Tom Ketteler at 402-395-6408.
