CROSSWICKS, NJ -
On Saturday, The Crosswicks Community House hosted the 2013 Crosswicks Croquet Classic.
Here is WBNC's extended coverage:
The event began with a flag raising ceremony at 11:45am in memory of First Lieutenant John Bradman who made the ultimate sacrifice in vietnam.
His family looked on as a flag was raised on the flagpole next to the Crosswicks Community House.
A few words about his life were read by members of Boy Scout Troop 55 of Crosswicks and the Troop's bugler sounded off as the flag was raised.
Joseph Donnelly, Burlington County Freeholder Director started off the event by presenting the Crosswicks Community Association with a plaque for all their hard work in the township. He then said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, start your wickets!" signifying the beginning of the games.
There's a great BBQ food stand, crafts and baked goods from the Crosswicks Library, root beer floats from the Crosswicks Meeting House, as well as musical performances from various artists from around the township from 2pm to 8pm.
The finals took place around 5:30pm and 4 of the 6 finalists were in the finals last year. The one to watch was Allison, as she won first place last year, but also Remington, as he was the youngest, and had lots of good shots.
In the end, Mick Chorba, the singer of The Successful Failures, who performed at the event, came in first place, Chris Quinn came in second, and Mark Osman came in third.
Now, the event has transformed into a concert on the greens of sorts, with performers continuing to play until 8PM. So you can still head to the Crosswicks Community House for a great evening of music!
