Crisis Assistance hosts Family Fun Day

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 19, residents had the opportunity to enjoy a totally free Family Fun Day.

Princeton Crisis Family Fun Day: The Fishing Pond and Basketball Toss events for kids were hosted by the Princeton Elks Club.

With permission from Cooper’s Foods, the Princeton Crisis Assistance Society hosted their Family Fun Day at the old Overwaitea Foods parking lot on Saturday, July 19. The society hosts the day each year as a token of appreciation to the community for the support given to the society throughout the year.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. residents had the opportunity to enjoy a totally free Family Fun Day.

Fifteen children participated in the bike parade with decorated bikes and some even in costume themselves. Each child received a gift for participating. Bouncy castles loaned from the Princeton Baptist Church were enjoyed and a fish pond and basketball throw sponsored by the Princeton Elks brought many happy smiles when prizes were received.

Residents were also treated to bowling games, free prize basket draws and face painting, provided by the Princeton Youth Ambassadors; Alex Burke and Kassidy McCutcheon.

Local musician, Alan K. Parsons, gave a performance  from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Rockridge Canyon was kind enough to loan their barbecue for the afternoon and a free barbecue lunch was enjoyed by those in attendance.

The afternoon was organized by Josie Penner and Rayleen Brewer, members of the Princeton Crisis Assistance Society.

Brewer stated that the old Overwaitea site was a great place to have the event as they could keep traffic out—keeping the kids safe. “We’ve had way more kids than we had last year,” she said,  It’s turned out to be a great event.”
