Community Birthday Bash

Marion County Public schools partnered with Springview Hospital, Central Kentucky Head Start, HANDS, First Steps, and CECC to give children in our community a Big Birthday Bash!  We had 100 people in attendance with 41 being children from Birth to 4 years of age.

It was wonderful seeing so many happy families come together-we are so thankful for all in attendance.  Please share the word---next year we want 200 people at our event.

Parents were provided resources, information, door prizes, and a book (author-Rosemary Wells).  We were honored to have the Birthday Bunny greet the children and families.  Also, as any good birthday party---cupcakes were served!
