Volunteers requested for Promise Grant event this Saturday the 9th in Kenton


Volunteers are requested to help with our Promise Grant event at the Kenton Middle School on Saturday, February 9,
2019. The event runs from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. and I ask that helpers be at the Middle School gymnasium 12:30 that afternoon.

The event, which is for kids in grade 6-8, will feature COSI workshops on astronomy and crime scene investigation, Draper’s Photo Booth and fun experiments.

While the kids are enjoying their workshops in the gym, their parents/guardians/caregivers will attend an informational workshop of their own in the auditorium on the topic of parenting today. Area professionals will cover such subjects as: the dangers of sexting; technology addiction; sex trafficking; drug use; mental health and responsibilities of both the teen and the parent/caregiver.

The Elks will provide refreshments to all following the workshops. If you would be willing to give a few hours on February 9 to help with this important project, please contact me, Julie Crowe, at 419-673-5009, as soon as possible.
