FAMILY & FRIENDS DAY 2016
It was hot out on the field during picnic time, but not too hot for the children to enjoy themselves in a friendly competition of a relay race, shone above as they lined up.
After the relay race, the children were ready to demonstrate their youthful strength in teamwork as they lined up for the tug of war game.
Every child on the winning team of each competition received a prize. However, the best prize was when all of the children were told to line up for free ice cream of their choice, compliments of Trustee Shawn Venson.
