Saturday Fun Days for the 2010-2011 school year began on Saturday, October 30th at Calhoun Middle-High School with over 300 people attending.
Janet Heiney (right) spoke to the group about the Mid-Ohio Valley Health Department grant which helps sponsor a healthy breakfast at the event.
The National Guard brought their obstacle course for all the children to enjoy that day. Every child went home with a "treat" bag after lunch was served by the Middle School Boosters.
The second Saturday Fun Day was held December 18th. Parents received information regarding safety at Christmas time. Dr. Lynn Gilbert also spoke to the parents regarding the sealant program available through Minnie Hamilton Health System.
