Family Fun Day – Save the Date!

The date has been set for the 41st Annual Family Fun Day:  Saturday, March 10, 2018!!  Held at the LBCC Activities Center, this annual fundraising event helps to build the Parent Education Grant fund, and attracts 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, Bouncy Castles, an obstacle course, a bean bag toss, fishing, a dig and dirt area, and basketball bowling give kids a lot of physical activity and excitement, while the face painting, play dough, silly putty, crown making, junk art, and a photo booth allow them to enjoy the fun of arts and crafts.  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.

Please put us on your calendar and plan on attending!
