Good Turnout for Fun Day

Approximately 150 visitors, parents and kids showed up at the Mabee Red Shield Boys & Girls Club Saturday for “Fun Day,”   according to Jerome Smith, the Club’s Director. The purpose of Fun Day was to showcase the many activities the Club offers to attract new members. Participants were offered a variety of activities including sports, arts and lunch. Despite temperatures of 97 degrees, football enthusiasts learned new moves in a mini clinic while the StarZ Dance Team performed in the gym. North Mabee Athletic Director Kenny King flipped burgers on the grill and kids had their faces painted by Young Rembrandts representatives.  Parents talked to reps from the Boy Scouts, H&R Block, Pratt College and Mary Kay. Young kids enjoyed a Jupiter Jump while moms and grandmas listened to Red Shield Athletic Director Sam Berry and a member of his gospel quartet sing gospel music. Many thanks go to KJAMZ 105.3 radio for promoting Fun Day on the air. And thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make Fun Day a smashing success!
