Big Brothers Big Sisters To Host Event Rain Or Shine
Greater Wyoming Big Brothers Big Sisters in Laramie is hosting a Back to School Bash, and organizers say the event will go on rain or shine.
The bash is scheduled for today, August 28 and will be at Undine Park between Fifth and Ord Streets. If weather does not permit an outdoor event, the bash will be held in the Big Brothers Big Sisters building at 518 Ord Street across the street from Undine Park. The event is free and open to the public from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m.
Hanna Eslinger with Big Brothers Big Sisters says the Back to School bash is a resource fair for families to learn what kind of services and activities are available for their children. Several groups involved with children and families are invited to provide information about their services. Some booths and tables featured will include information on day cares, after school activities, non-profit groups, health care providers, children’s programs and other family oriented services.
The event will have booths, tables, free food, games, children's activities and more.
Eslinger says this is the third year doing the bash, and it is the first year weather has been any kind of issue. She says the event has been successful the last two years.
