Crowe readies for some fun

High school kids will have chance to give back to the younger generation during a fun carnival day just for kids between the ages of two and 10.

J. Lloyd Crowe Secondary School’s leadership students, with help from volunteers, are hosting Family Fun Fair from 6-7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the high school’s gymnasium.

“It makes them feel special, inviting them into big-kid territory,” said Grade 10 Kelsa Quakenbush, who along with Alexa Matthes, Grade 11, has organized the annual event.

For the third year in a row, kids can choose from different fun stations including beanbag toss, hula-hoop and face painting. Some of the carnival games will require tickets, which cost $1 for 10.

Organizers will also be serving hot dogs for dinner, and have lined up science teacher Wayne Limbert to perform experiments.

Matthes said it’s always entertaining to watch young kids have fun doing activities considered too old for teenagers.

The carnival is one of the many student-planned community events spearheaded by leadership students.
