Wednesday, September 12, 2018, 2:00 to 6:00 pm
LYNN COMMONS (west side of the Gazebo)
More than 500 families and their children are expected to attend what has become a traditional start-of-the-school-year extravaganza – this year’s 11th Annual Family Fun Day on the Lynn Commons! Scheduled for after-school hours, the event features age-appropriate recreational and field activities for young children such as games, story time, arts & crafts – even a Moon Bounce – while parents get the opportunity to receive information from community resource organizations and businesses from Lynn and around the state.
While children are supervised in sack-races, water games, bean bag contests and tattooing, community organizations introduce parents to valuable resources available to them. Some of the service providers participating will be WIC/Lynn Community Health Center, Aspire Developmental Services, Lynn Public School’s Coordinated Family & Community Engagement Program (CFCE), Catholic Charities North, Boys & Girls Club, Girl Scouts of America, and more. Businesses participating will be Eastern Bank, dental clinics, health centers, financial services and more!
Loads of free gifts for both parents and children will be available, including backpacks and school supplies! No advance registration needed. No rain date.
