What a great weekend for fun! On Saturday, parents will want to bring their kids to the future home of the Boys & Girls Club of Massena for KIDS DAY, starting at 11 AM! [Download our Kids Day Flier 2015]
KIDS DAY will be an amazing way for kids to spend a summer Saturday – featuring inflatable fun, an obstacle course, face painting, decorating the Club’s community garden, and special kid-focused programs with a focus on healthy habits and healthy fun.
The event will feature the “Museum Without Walls” from the North Country Children’s Museum, for groups of kids every half-hour from 11 AM to 1 PM. Kids from preschool to middle school and their caregivers will love the special workshops that feature a variety of arts and science programs.
There will also be lots of fun programs that help to encourage good nutrition, regular physical activity and improve overall well-being. The Club’s future home at 30 Bayley Road will offer healthy summer snacks for a nominal fee, and B&D Entertainment will have their inflatable fun ready for kids to enjoy until 3 PM. The Temple is also setting up an obstacle course for kids to see just how much fun exercise can be!
Kid-focused workshops will be presented throughout the event, including: Eating for Life, nutrition for kids by Bridgette Tempresta, SUNY Potsdam Student Intern at the Boys & Girls Club of Massena; Snack Down: It’s a Choice, presented by BGCM Director Debra Donatto; Amazingly Awesome Organics, with Charlene Dumas; and, Happy Smiles with Healthy Teeth, presented by Cheryl Gardner and the staff of Dr. Scruggs dental office.
Garden Share, Potsdam Co-Op, St. Lawrence Health Initiative are also among the guests we are expecting.
An important part of the event will also be a live radio remote with local celebrity Sandy Cook, an honorary chairperson for the Boys & Girls Club of Massena’s “Our Kids, Our Community” Campaign Committee. The radio broadcast will offer an opportunity to share the current status of the Club, next steps and encourage the continuing commitment by the community for this incredibly important effort.
Don’t miss this healthy fun-filled event, from 11 AM to 3 PM on Saturday at the future home of the Boys & Girls Club of Massena, 30 Bayley Road, Massena!
