Thursday (July 11) event aims to support the program
One of the truly great things that are indelibly attached to summer if you’re a Newaygo County kid is Summer Magic, an organized and supervised play site for kids in 3 of our towns 4 days a week. It is open ended with few requirements other than a willingness to play well with others, a desire for fun intermingled with some rather imaginative educational programs and the chance to do some very cool things like scuba dive and go on field trips. Lewis Farms is up next.The cost for this? A mere 2 bucks a day and not required for participation.
The program is so popular that the numbers have exceeded expectations so there is a dire need for more staff.
The problem is funding those necessary positions.
Want to help? The folks at NC PCA (Newaygo County Prevention of Child Abuse & Neglect) the organization that operates Summer Magic will be holding an event this Thursday July 11th at Brooks Park from 630-8pm. The informal gathering will include music, information and a few personal accounts to help tell the story of what puts the magic into Summer Magic.
And if you know a couple of kids who have been going to Summer Magic ask them, or better yet, ask their parents, how much the program means to them.
And please you can’t come down but would still like to donate?
