FAMILY SNOWMAN BUILDING CHALLENGE

A ‘cool’ and creative activity for the whole family this winter! Ring in the NEW YEAR and during the month of January 2017 and spend time with your family building a snowman in your own yard. When your family snowman is all completed, take a picture of your creation and e-mail the picture to:   mcasparius@merrimacknh.gov.

At the end of the month, Parks & Recreation will post all of the photos on our Facebook page. From February 1st to February 5th, family, friends and followers of the Parks & Recreation Facebook page will have the change to vote for their favorite creation. The photo with the most ‘likes’ will receive a special Parks & Recreation prize pack.  In addition, the winner’s name will be posted on the Parks & Recreation Department website and announced on Merrimack TV.  This "Family Snowman Building Challenge" is open to all Merrimack families.

Email a picture of your snowman, the snowman's name, the name(s) of the snowman builders and address of the snowman for our records.  ***Parks & Recreation will only use your address to verify Merrimack residency and will NOT share your address or email address to the public. Only first names of snowman builders will be used in the description of each photo posted on our Facebook Page.***
