Free event promotes fun, safety
There’s something about that last week of school. There is a pent up excitement among the kids who are busting to get out the door for the final time this year while teachers and other staff members are doing whatever they can to rein in the tsunamic energy surging through the buildings.
Soon it will be over. Streams of young children will pour out of our schools and be given hours of free time to engage in some serious summer fun.
And with safety as our top priority for our progeny, the Annual Newaygo County Kids Day is an ideal setting for the younger set to become acquainted with the women and men who help keep our community safe.
This event, spawned from rather humble beginnings nearly 20 years ago, puts a perfect punctuation mark on the school year and celebrates not just the start of summer but our most valuable of all resources our children.
Kids Day has expanded into an exciting extravaganza with an enticing array of activities for families to participate in.
“This will be another great year for Newaygo County Kids Day,” said Dr. Ross Nelson who has organized the event the past five years. “Last year we lost count at 700 kids and I’m hoping for 1000 this year.
“The event continues to grow with more fun activities and participants and it is great to see. You won’t want to miss it”
The fun begins at Brooks Park in downtown Newaygo Saturday June 9th at noon and runs (in a rather spirited manner) until 3pm.
Best of all?
It is Free.
