Big Day at the Lake (Lake Norman) ~ Event


BIG DAY at the Lake                                                                                                                


On Saturday, July 19th (rain day is Saturday, July 26th) the Lake Norman Community is observing the fourth annual Big Day at the Lake. Big Day is embraced by the local business community. It's a day when people from all walks of life come together. It is organized around the Big Brother/Big Sisters model. Young people in Big Brothers/Big Sisters are invited for a day of fun and recreation on Lake Norman. The event includes tubing and swimming to fishing and sailing. To make this a fun and safe outing each young person comes with a built-in chaperone. Without the support of literally hundreds of volunteer boat hosts who donate their time to take the kids out on the lake in boats of all kinds this fun could not happen.                                                    




From the very beginning the Lake Norman business community has literally dived in head first to support the Big Day at the Lake event. This year more than $30,000 in cash went into supporting the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Greater Charlotte.


Big Day culminates in a massive picnic at Duke's Energy Explorium.  The picnic features hot dogs and soft drinks, lots of games for yet another opportunity for different groups of people to mingle, talk, and forge relationships.


At a time when our society is increasingly stratified, this event makes a splash heard all over the region.

Hello Teresa,

I like your post about Lake Norman with your google map attachment, but no verbage! The reason I am commenting is because I love Lakes, Rivers, Oceans, water, etc.

What a great idea. I wish we had something like this for Lake Travis. Maybe I can talk to someone with City Council. Thanks for the idea!
