Child, Youth and School Services; Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation; in conjunction with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, have presented Day for Kids each year since 2003. The event sets aside a specific day to provide an opportunity for meaningful interaction between adults and children. 

Day for Kids will feature food, games, activities, crafts, displays and even a visit from Eddie the Eagle. The Little Ninjas and Hula Maidens from FMWR’s Schools of Knowledge, Inspiration, Exploration and Skills Unlimited, will entertain the crowd. Teen Zone band, Delayed Resistance, will cap off the afternoon with a performance. Door prizes will also be given away throughout the afternoon. 

“I hope the community takes advantage of our free Day for Kids event on the 25th,” said Mark Maddox, Day for Kids coordinator. “It’s a great opportunity for children and parents to spend a few hours of quality time together, having fun and enjoying a variety of healthy activities.” 

Parents are encouraged to come and bring their children for an afternoon that is all about celebrating and spending time with their kids.
