On Saturday August 6, the community of Madisonville held it's annual Streetfest. Dial One Security was once again proud to be a sponsor of this great event. The event is put on every year by local organizations, businesses and churches to give the children of Madisonville an opportunity to come out for a day of totally free fun and food. The children were able to earn a free backpack full of school supplies once they collected stamps in their passport book from each sponsor's activity. The Cincinati SWAT team showed off their equipment and the Cincinnati Fire Department allowed the children to work an actual fire nozzle. Several members of the local churches provided live music for the afternoon.
One of the main events of the day was the Izzy's Reuben eating contest. Dial One Security fielded one of the four teams of four, nicknamed the "The Reubenators", which competed to eat a 5 1/2 lb reuben sandwich divided up amongst the four team members. Our team was comprised of John Lindberg, Cynthia Hoffman, Roy White and Jeff Payne. We put up a strong effort and lead much of the contest but were denied the win by seconds in the end by ArmstrongChurch.
In the end, everyone had fun, and the children of Madisonville were the real winners!
