On Saturday February 16th, members of the Family Council and the MDS Children’s Service Coordination team joined together to host a Family Fun Day. The event, held at the Keene Recreation Center, featured games and prizes for children and a free on-site workshop for parents.

The KHS Interact Club joined Council members, staff and other volunteers at the play stations for children: face painting, temporary tattoos and nail painting; crafts; cupcake decorating; a tumbling and climbing area; ball toss and a music area. Children had fun dancing, running, eating and playing while those parents who attended the training learned how to promote positive behavior in their children.

The Council hopes to do more family-friendly events where families can connect with one another and meet their Council representatives.
