Come join White Shadow, showman for the Globetrotter Legends, for Lisbon’s inaugural “Character First” event on March 8th!
Where & When:
We’re kicking things off Saturday 3/8 at 11am with events running until around 3pm.
The location is Lisbon’s Open Door BibleBaptist Church gymnasium on the corner of Route 196 and Gartley Street in Lisbon.
Gibbons will be holding his first ball handling and shooting clinic at 11:00am for boys and girls, ages 5 to 8. And a second clinic for ages 9-18 from 12pm until 1pm. Then at 1pm we will have a free community event including, concession stands, give aways and contests for the kids as Gibbons will be performing his interactive, Showtime Basketball Exhibition! Any Harlem Globetrotter fan, young or old, will enjoy the basketball tricks, trick shots and interactive comedy acts. It will be a fun afternoon for the whole family. The program will be hosted by Open Door Bible. Gibbons will be speaking at the very end. He will be sharing his life story and talking to the young people about choices, the rewards and consequences that accompany the choices we make every day. Gibbons will also touch on the dangers of bullying/cyber-bullying, peer pressure, cyber safety etc. Our goalwith this program, and future Character First events is to entertain, engage and educate! We will challenge the young people to make some decisions that will benefit them all for the rest of their lives.
After the show, we will open the court up for the adults to play pick up games. The gym reopens for the community again at 6:30pm for our weekly open gym night as well. Children need to be accompanied by an adult. There is no charge for the clinics but there will be donation jars available. We hope to see you there!
