This year, the kids had a great time with the games, inflatables and train, balloon animals and the science guy inside the library. The firemen and mounted police are always on hand talking with families too. This year they even had free immunizations from the KC Health Department. Everyone enjoyed the hot dogs and watermelon and going through the resource fair, as well as picking up their backpacks and school supplies. Over 200 kids ages 5+ received the supplies, as well as donated prizes (including piggy banks from Central Bank of KC).
One little girl spun the wheel and was crossing her fingers saying, “I hope I get the piggy bank!” She did land on the piggy bank and skipped off with her prize. Hopefully, she’ll start saving right away and become a lifelong saver!
