Denver Days 2013 ended Saturday night, and I think this has to be one of the best yet! The crowds were large Wednesday and Thursday evenings for the students to pay one price and ride all night long! The Denver Lake Norman Rotary Club sponsors Denver Days, and had a fund-raising cookout – must have been decent food since we sold out both nights!
We had good music all three nights and for those who had not heard Jim Quick and Coastline (Saturday night), they were treated to some awesome music and a great show by Jim! Gonna have to have them back at a future Denver Days! Thank you also to Chosen Rejects, Treehouse and Bob May for great music and entertainment.
This was the 11th annual Denver Days, and the Denver Days Board looks for suggestions to make 2014 even better. Suggestions come from the Board and from the Rotary Club, and we would love suggestions from you! Anything you feel should be continued, anything you feel should be started or stopped or any changes please let us know. You can post or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Denver Lake Norman Rotary Club has managed Denver Days for the last 3 years, with 100% of the net revenue going directly to the “East Lincoln Rescue Park” and we should be ready to have a ground breaking for the park toward the end of this year or the first of 2014. By coming and having fun at Denver Days, you are helping the park construction! Now, isn’t that a great deal?
Thanks to everyone who came and had a good time. Thanks for the Special Needs Kids who had a great time Thursday afternoon. Thanks to the bands, all the vendors and businesses, the sponsors, advertisers and all the volunteers who made this happen!
It’s time to start planning for 2014, and time for your suggestions. We would love to hear from y
The Denver Lake Norman Rotary Club welcome tent is your entrance to the midway and rides, where you can ask questions and get information about Denver Days, the park or directions to the best rides. Our Rotary Club is proud to host Denver Days for the 4th year, with our goal to make your visit enjoyable.
Rotary will have special events going on throughout Denver Days and hope you will participate:
1. Wednesday and Thursday evening cookout! Come for dinner! We’re cooking burgers, hot dogs and brats and plus all the fixins for you! The grill will be hot and ready by 5 PM, prices will be reasonable, and we know our cooks will do such a good job that you will come back the next night! Wednesday and Thursday only!
2. Half and half nightly drawing, and the winning ticket each night receives half the “pot” if your ticket is drawn! Buy as many tickets as you want, $1.00 each, and then hope you hold the lucky ticket when the drawing is held at 9 PM nightly. Pretty easy, huh? The more tickets you buy, the better your chance of winning. The winner each night will be announced at the entertainment stage, and you must be present to win.
3. Silent Auction both Friday and Saturday nights. Lots of nice items, so place your bid and hope you have the winning bid at 10 PM when the tables close. All items are donated so while buying something nice for you or as a gift, you help us to support our many projects. Restaurant coupons, automotive and marine services, lots of selections. No minimum bid, but check back often. Do not need to be present to win.
All proceeds from the Rotary tent will help support our local and international
projects; these are listed on the Rotary Club page or you may visit denverlakenormanrotary.com for more information.
If you are interested in joining our Rotary Club, just stop one of the Rotarians wearing a white knit shirt with the Rotary seal emblem and let’s talk. Our club is very active and is made up of people who want to make our community and our world better and we know that, working together we can accomplish so much more than as individuals.

FREE Concert by JIM QUICK & COASTLINE at Denver Days 2013. The swamp boy was raised just east of the Carolina Sandhills and has an upbringing surrounded by soul. From the roots of black gospel to the hard-hitting vocals of the 60s, Jim’s sound is reminiscent of Mussel Shoals yet has a distinct character like no other. On stage, his showmanship is second to none and recognized time and time again from The Carolina Music Awards by winning “Entertainer Of The Year” more than anyone. Quick’s been touring the Southeast US for more than 15 years, playing nearly 300 shows per year, and has released more than 11 albums including his newest, DOWN SOUTH.
Originally introducing their music as the Coastline Band, a band of friends who played the Carolina beach bars day in and day out,—the group pushed Quick to the forefront and naturally transformed into Jim Quick & Coastline.
