Fun and Games Set the Stage for Fall Festival

November 2, 2017

Smiles, costumes, games, candy and fun were the only things on the agenda at the annual Fall Festival for the kids in the YWCA’s child development programs.

Whether they were playing Ring Toss, decorating cookies, bowling with pumpkins or jumping in the bounce house, the girls and boys had a frighteningly good time at the event, which is hosted by the Junior Board.

The gym was filled with little ladybugs, firefighters, princesses and superheroes who enjoyed a cake walk, face painting, and Go Fish. Prizes were abundant, and the children had a hard time deciding what to do next. The older kids also made glow-in-the-dark shirts and enjoyed a dance party in a room illuminated by fluorescent black lights and glow sticks.

The YW’s two child development programs, KIDS Korner and Calico Corner, and the After School Enrichment Program (ASEP) serve children from homeless and low-income families. Events like the Fall Festival allow them to participate in activities they may not otherwise get to enjoy.

“The children had such a wonderful time, and we are grateful to our Junior Board members for the love they put into this event,” said Yolanda Sullivan, CEO. “The girls and boys made lots of memories and they were able to have fun in a safe, happy environment.”
