7th Annual Kids Fair Saturday!

By Judy Bushy

The 7th Annual Kids Fair was held last Saturday at the beautiful River Park in Happy Camp. There were games like Duck Duck, Goose with water balloons. Great fun for a hot day! Thanks to the CHP officers that were there, families were able to have free CHP car seats and installation. The officers kindly answered families’ questions on keeping children safe when traveling. They had video and a survey to fill out too.

Besides the games and prizes for the kids, they loved the dental booth. Vickie Waddell gave the children new toothbrushes, brushing timer, and even gum that is good for your teeth. One little gentleman must have reminded me a million times, that it was good for his teeth!! (Maybe a slight exaggeration!)

The fishing pond was one of the favorite games for the kids, and some even got big teddy bears. Sue Hillman helped children make puppets with glitter and markers and glue and all that fun stuff. There was a table to paint a hat.

There was a raffle for adults, too! Rita Manley, “Queen of the Universe” — well, I asked, so she jokingly told me I could call her that, was taking a survey on what services the Family Resrouce Center might provide to the community. Some of the suggested items were GED assistance and Seniors’ programs. They already do so many things that it is honestly difficult to think of anything not covered yet. They are always looking for ways to be of help in our isolated little town of Happy Camp.

Cliff Stockton cooked up the hotdogs for lunch. There were free hot dogs, sodas, and water which was welcome on that hot afternoon.  Sno cones were also a popular item.

There was a tortoise to talk to. His name is Barstow. And Smokey bear arrived with helpers to hand out stickers and things to the kids!

Kids books give away was from the First 4 program for preschool age children who will have a good start in school due to this boost to literacy. What a wonderful time under the shady trees in the grassy area at the right fork of the park drive. It was a pleasant afternoon to share with community members and visit with neighbors.

Thanks to Dorcas and all the sponsors and volunteers that helped make this a great day. It had to be moved from July due to the fire danger when it was initially scheduled. It ended up being a celebration that our town still stands together!
