Hundreds Enjoy YMCA Back-To-School Bash

ymca bash2

MADISONVILLE, Ky. (8/2/13) – The YMCA's Back-To-School Bash Friday made a big splash with parents and children, who received a free sacked lunch, enjoyed inflatable water activities plus swimming in the outdoor pool and were given backpacks filled with school supplies.

Darlene Sheyer said Friday's event, which was open to the public, had the largest turnout of its three-year history. Part of the funding for it came from the Walmart Foundation, she said.
 
"We've had 150 children today to join us in addition to the Kids Center children that are regularly here," said Sheyer. "In all, that's about 275 children that enjoyed the day here."
 
Sheyer said the event coincided with the Summer Food Service Program that has provided 47,000 meals to Hopkins County students during the school break. The effort is part of the United States Department of Agriculture Administration and the Hopkins County School System.
 
"Children that are on the free and reduced lunch program have been supplied meals during the summer months through the program," said Sheyer. "We've served 170 meals every day and have even had a mobile service along with the regular locations."
 
The final day for the Summer Food Service Program is Aug. 6 at the YMCA at 150 YMCA Drive, Madisonville.
