Family Fun Day
The 39th Annual LBCC Family Fun Day shaped up to be a wonderful event!! This year's event was 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. This year we raised almost $7,500, which will help many deserving parents to attend LBCC Parenting Classes over the coming year!!
The 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, 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. Safe Haven brought their "doggie Ambassadors" for the children to pet and love, the Mid-Valley Doula network provided a family rest area, the Albany YMCA ran a fun obstacle course, Kidco Head Start provided a reading area, Princess Perfection of Corvallis "loaned" us two of their Disney princesses for story reading and photo opportunities, and we had a special visit from Rocky the Roadrunner! 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 were held for prizes that are donated by local companies and individuals.
We are so grateful for the support of the local community and businesses, the LBCC administration, our LBCC instructors and class parents, and our Staff and their families. It takes so many people to make this event a success each year, and we are looking forward to our Family Fun Day's 40th Anniversary in 2017! Please plan on attending!
