This past weekend I volunteered at the Community Wide Play Day through the Community Partnership of the Ozarks. This was a great opportunity! Despite the terrible weather and all the rain over a hundred families showed up for the event and we had so many volunteers, we didn’t even know what to do with them! Which is never a bad thing by any means. This Play Day was opportunity for families to come with their children to play games and do crafts, while also learning about the community resources in the area. There were so many organizations at the event and everyone seemed just as excited as the children and had a good time. I was surprised how many families showed up in the pouring rain to take advantage of this event. It just goes to show how much families really appreciate and value events like these! This was just such a great opportunity for me and I look forward to helping with it again in the future!
