Do you remember the 80’s slogan “Where’s the beef?”
Last night, I believe the appropriate slogan would’ve been “Where’s the heat?”
As frigid temps peppered the Valley yesterday (hey, when you’re used to 100+ degree days in October, a plunge into the 50’s and 60’s is frigid!) and the usually absent wind picked up force, we had a Fall Festival — outside, of course!
Frigid around here just means you wear a sweatshirt with your shorts.
There was cotton candy made by sugar chef Amy and her assistant Jovani.
There was face painting……by Emily:
…..and Flerida (and others)
There were crazy clowns.
There were games….throw-a-dart, pop-a-balloon, win-some-candy:
Sponge Bob also showed up in the form of a bounce house, but he jiggled too much when I took his photo, so His Royal Blurryness isn’t pictured here.
Despite the coolness, it was still a fun-filled night for our Kids Klub children and their families and others in the community. We were blessed to receive a large donation of candy from employees at Qwest, where our Kids Klub director Ro’s wife works. They are the founding partners of our new organization called Children At-Risk for Cavity Formation.
We have also recently been blessed with the opportunity to purchase food in bulk very cheaply through St. Mary’s Food Bank. Since we provide a snack at the majority of our programs, this way of purchasing food has already been a big money-saver, plus we can offer more variety in what we serve.
Well, I’m off to work on the incorporation papers for Children At-Risk for Cavity Formation.
Just kidding. Have a lovely afternoon!
