Golf carts get dressed up for patriotic contest, scavenger hunt and blessing at Daybreak Community Church

LAPEL – It’s not about golf. Those carts racing around Lapel this weekend are more likely to be seen stopping at any number of sites participating in the town wide rummage sale or other Village Fair activities.

Daybreak Community Church is tapping into Lapel’s enthusiasm for golf carts with a pair of unique competitions and even a blessing on Saturday.

“They have become so popular in town, and we have a lot of people that come by here, especially during the Village Fair,” said the Rev. Richard Cole, Daybreak’s pastor.

Cole is inviting golf cart owners and renters to dress their carts up in red, white and blue. The patriotic carts will assemble at the church on Saturday morning at 10 a.m., where they will be judged and prizes awarded.

Pastor Cole will then bless the carts. Finally, drivers will receive clues for a scavenger hunt, and they’ll all set out — released to the wilds of Lapel. They have until noon, and the successful scavenger who returns first wins.

Golf cart drivers must follow local ordinances. They’ll need a valid driver’s license to secure proper permitting to operate the carts in Lapel. During the fair, temporary permits can be secured through the Lapel Police Department for $30.

The golf cart blessing, decorating contest and scavenger hunt is just one slice of the pie that Daybreak Community Church is serving up during Lapel’s Village Fair. It’s all homemade, too.

To start the day, the church is offering homemade breakfast croissants, baked right there at Daybreak. The croissants will sell for $3 each, and they’ll be available from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Then, the church switches gears, and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. they’re offering strawberry short cake with ice cream for $4.

“They are to die for. They are delicious,” said Debbie Cole.
