June 2008 / Bott Radio Network in Fort Wayne helped celebrate the birthday of Norbert the giant tortoise at the Fort Wayne Childrenâ€™s Zoo on Wednesday, June 25th
Bott Radio Network staff members in Fort Wayne and their children enjoyed a day at the Fort Wayne Childrenâ€™s Zoo where we helped celebrate the birthday of their oldest tortoise Norbert. We were thrilled to meet some of the families who won 8-paks of tickets to the zoo through our on-air ticket giveaway. Kids and parents came to our display table to play games and sign a giant birthday card which was presented to Norbert during his party that afternoon. We enjoyed meeting parents while the kids played our Panda Pitch ring toss game where everyone was a winner! The zoo had games and scavenger hunts throughout the grounds and in spite of a couple of brief thunderstorms, everyone had a great time! The Fort Wayne Childrenâ€™s Zoo is one of the areaâ€™s major attractions and has been named one of the countryâ€™s â€śTen Best Zoos for Kidsâ€ť by Child magazine.
Lots of children came for Norbertâ€™s birthday party and lined up at the 1090 AM display area to play â€śPanda Pitch.â€ť Steven Manning, Control Room Operator, helped one young man play to win a BRN Frisbee!
Guests at the WFCV display table signed a giant birthday card that was presented to Norbert during his party.
Everyone gathered around and sang â€śHappy Birthdayâ€ť to Norbert as he enjoyed his fruit and vegetable â€śbirthday cake!â€ť
