Family Fun Day
It's nearly time for this year's 38th Annual LBCC Family Fun Day!! This year's event is scheduled for Saturday, February 28th, 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 over $6,000, and this year promises to be even bigger and better!!
Last year's event attracted 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, a Bouncy Castle, a Pinewood Derby track, and Basketball Bowling gave kids lots of physical activity and excitement, while the Face Painting, Play Dough, Foam Peanut Sculptures, Tattoos, and Crown Making allowed them to enjoy the fun of arts and crafts. There was also a wide selection of books and toys for sale, and the concessions stand provided lots of delicious snacks and beverages.
At the end of the day, prizes were drawn for the more than 50 items that were donated by local companies and individuals. So far this year, the following prizes have been donated:
|Portland Timbers Tickets||Granite Cutting Board|
|Message Therapy Certificates||Samsung Galaxy AT&T Telephone|
|Tiffany Bracelet||Book Basket from Barefoot Books|
