The 2023 Winters Youth Day event is officially on the books for Saturday, April 29.
Following a call out to the community, resident Stephen Roehrs volunteered to serve on the Youth Day Committee board — filling an essential need that President Mike Sebastian said was a make-it-or-break-it decision on whether the event would happen this year.
The committee chose “Grow Youthful” as the theme for the 85th Annual Winters Youth Day Celebration. The theme was submitted by Josie Hoskins, a Shirley Rominger Intermediate School student. Hoskins won a $100 prize, and the theme will be used for the parade entries as well as Youth Day marketing items like the annual t-shirts.
The next steps for committee members are to start updating forms to begin accepting parade entries, launching the Duck Derby duck sales, accepting Grand Marshal nominations and working with Winters High School to identify who the Youth Council will be.
More information will be shared in the Express, on the Youth Day Facebook page, and on the Youth Day website at wintersyouthday.com.
