Help Senior Center, get good fireworks view



Update 7/1: Last night the folks at Not a Number sent this message: “Rocking Chair Races canceled due to lack of volunteers and time. Replacements being planned.” Stay tuned…

Here’s an opportunity to get a prime seat for the July 4th fireworks at Gas Works Park and help out the recently revived Wallingford Community Senior Center: Volunteer to help with rocking chair races during the pre-fireworks festivities.

Not a Number and the Wallingford Chamber of Commerce are putting together the fundraiser for the Senior Center, which for years hosted popular and successful rocking chair races.

Kara Ceriello, Not a Number’s co-owner and the president of the Chamber, said that she’s 90% sure the rocking chair races will happen, but she’s waiting to hear from the fellow who developed the contraption that counts the rocks and displays them on a screen.

Even if the rocking chair races don’t happen, they’ll still fundraise for the Senior Center with a raffle and are looking for donations from local businesses. Not a Number co-owner Jon DeLeeuw said that his business, as well as Yazdi, Trophy Cupcakes, Sock Monster, Fainting Goat Gelato, have donated prizes for the raffle.

DeLeeuw is lining up volunteers for 2-hour shifts at Gas Works. Contact him at jon@notanumberinc.com or call Not a Number at 784-0965. He said he’ll save space in Not a Number’s booth area for volunteers to watch the fireworks.
