Games and hot dogs and cheer, oh my!

Everyone patiently waits to see if he’ll get to claim his prize!

As the rain fell vehemently on the roof of our beloved Bishop Warren Center, we rejoiced at the festivities and warmth inside! A party of over 500 cheerful Children International participants and family members poured through the gymnasium in awe at the plethora of activities.

Bean bag tossing, hopscotch jumping, and duck searching just to name a few!

With entertainment galore, it’s still important to remember what brought us together– the celebration of Special Hug month and to give thanks to our sponsors for that little something extra, the Special Hug Kroger gift card.

Just mere moments before realizing they got the winning duck! Big and small kids alike came together to lend a helpful hand allowing everyone to take home a special prize.

 

 

 

 

Many were proud to draw pictures and write letters to their sponsors keeping up the pen-pal spirit and adding a spectacular win for the good ol’ mailbox! A phrase so simple as, “How was your day?” from across the globe can truly speak volumes. With pals ranging from Guatemala to Delhi, it’s nice to learn something new of another place on Earth.

Door prizes included science kits, a video recorder, Visa gift cards, cookbooks, and even a robotic T-rex!

Thank you to everyone who came to UALR-CI’s Family Fall Fest! You proved it to be a win for the celebratory spirit and good ol’ fashioned community. We look forward to seeing all of you soon at our next big event!
