After 9 AM, 163 children from the LVCC South Mountain, Walnut Street and Early Learning Center (ELC) locations began arriving. By 10:30 AM, the kids were on their way under the escort of their instructors and Key Club volunteers.
They enjoyed the parachute game, obstacle course, bubble-making station, t-ball, two science experiments, and the arts and crafts station where they painted little birdhouses.
Meanwhile, several of our
volunteers helped prepare lunch by firing up the grill, roasting hot dogs, and lining up the food station.
Around 11 AM, we enjoyed a visit by the LV Phantoms mascot MeLVin. He interacted
with the Allen HS Canary and Salisbury HS Falcon mascots. Kids love the mascots!
Shortly thereafter, we were honored by a visit from Allentown Mayor Matt Tuerk. Mayor Tuerk visited several of the activity stations and seemed to have a good time interacting with the children.
