On Saturday, September 10, our Lions Club participated in the Middletown Family Festival (FFF). The Leos, as they always do so well, assisted the kids to complete the four activities of our “Kids Fitness Challenge”. About 45 children participated and signed the “Kids Fitness Pledge”. Around our tent, kids were buzzing, excited to show us how fit they were and each one who completed the fitness challenge claimed a reward for their participation. Also they waited for the drawings (every 15 minutes) when we announced the winners of one the fabulous 20 prizes.
We all were having a great time, while hoping the dark clouds around us would disperse. But the bad weather was approaching, and at 3:45 p.m. we gave away the last 9 prizes to the kids that were waiting for the next drawing and, as directed by the Mayor, we closed our tent.
We did great with the “Kids Fitness Challenge” at the Middletown Family Festival. We appreciate the participation of Lions Terry, Kay, Marty M, Gail, Nina, Larry, Barbara, Klaus, Steve, Diana, Ron and Jenny. Lion Linda also stopped by. Again, we thank the Leos for adding so much energy and enthusiasm to our event. In Service Lion Jenny Hammond (co-chair with Lions Barb and Kay).
