Family Fun Day
The 39th Annual LBCC Family Fun Day is shaping up to be a wonderful event!! This year's event will be held on Saturday, February 20th, from 10:00am until 2:00pm, at the LBCC Activities Center. This annual fundraising event helps to build the Parent Education Grant Fund, which provides partial tuition for parent education classes. Last year we raised almost $6,000, which will help many deserving parents to attend LBCC Parenting Classes over the coming year!!
This event attracts hundreds of young children from across Linn and Benton counties for a day of fun activities, good food, and lots of prizes! Putt Putt Golf, two Bouncy Castles, an obstacle course, a Bean Bag Toss, Fishing, a Dig and Dirt area, and Basketball Bowling gave kids lots of physical activity and excitement, while the Face Painting, Play Dough, Silly Putty, Crown Making, Junk Art, and a Photo Booth allowed them to enjoy the fun of arts and crafts. Last year we also had Safe Haven with their "doggie Ambassadors" for the children to pet and love, Karate ATA Kids helped the children to break boards, the Mid-Valley Doula network provided a family rest area, Kidco Head Start provided a reading area, Cub Scout Pack 7355 was there with their Pinewood Derby track for the kids to race homemade cars on, and we had a special visit from Rocky the Roadrunner! This year promises to be even more fun! In addition, there will also be a wide selection of books and toys for sale, and a concessions stand to provide lots of delicious snacks and beverages.
At the end of the day, drawings will be held for prizes that are donated by local companies and individuals. These donors include:
