Mayor proclaims Fandango Fridays
June 15, 2017
Spencer Mayor Reynold Peterson signed a proclamation on Wednesday, proclaiming Fridays beginning June 23 and continuing through July 21, “Fandango Friday.” In support of Spencer RAGBRAI and the local committee's T-shirt contest, residents and businesses are encouraged to wear the official RAGBRAI shirts on Fridays. Those wishing to participate in the T-shirt contest can post a photo of themselves or their group wearing the RAGBRAI T-shirt on Facebook with the hashtag #kickyourwheelsup as well as sharing it on the Spencer RAGBRAI Facebook page. Winners will be announced each Friday and receive a pizza party from a local pizza establishment.
“We really want this to generate spirit in town by having everybody wear their shirts so it's recognizable and everybody knows the event is coming to town and just gets excited,” hospitality co-chair Jill Barr said (above right with fellow RAGBRAI committee member Andrea Wiesenmeyer). “We want to encourage fun pictures and they can submit multiple pictures if they want.” RAGBRAI T-shirts can be purchased at the Spencer Chamber of Commerce, Buena Vista University in the Gateway North Shopping Center, Squire Shoppe and Bikes, Boards & Shades all located in Spencer.
