June Update

It’s carnival day!  We’ve waited all  year to bring the carnival to the New Life girls.  Our dedicated volunteers manned the stations and had a great time playing with the girls.  Especially popular was the Aquablaster!  Hit the target and your victim is sprayed with a shower of water.  Great fun on a hot day!  The snacks were also a big success. Thanks to Nancy for leading the snack station.  Volunteers made popcorn, snow cones, cotton candy and distributed pickles.  And, who doesn’t love to try their skills with great carnival games.  Ice Cream Madness was a crowd favorite, there was also Tic Tac Toe, Plinko and Ring Toss.  A special shout out to Merrilee for putting together some outstanding relay races.  We had balancing golf balls on a plate relay, jelly beans in a jar relay, balance a ball on a plunger relay, and much much more.  What creative ideas to get the girls participating in friendly competition.  First time volunteer Elaine provided beautiful face painting that was quite popular with the girls. To top off the carnival, we finished with a chili dog luncheon provided by Rick Barger.  Everyone was so appreciative of the homemade chili, hot dogs and chips.  Can’t wait for next year!
