Lake Country Family Fun hosted its 6th annual Hartland Kids Day on Wednesday, July 25, 2018. This family-friendly, FREE event at Nixon Park had thousands of people attend! We sure hope you were there! There are three things that make Hartland Kids Day what it is: charity – giving back to our local community, sponsors – connecting local businesses and organizations with the community, and fun activities – because what’s summer without fun?! Plus, many thanks to Lake Country Now/JS Online for this great preview article!
Charity: Giving Back to Families in our Communities
Lake Country Family Fun supported the Backpack Coalition of Waukesha County as the charity of Hartland Kids Day again. With school starting in just a month, it makes sense to have a school supply drive to help ensure that all children are ready to start the school year this fall.
Lake Country Family Fun readers collected so many supplies for the Backpack Coalition, which will be distributed to students in need in Waukesha County. Many, many special thanks to Anna Huf, Mrs. Royalty International, for assisting Lake Country Family Fun again to get the word out and collect supplies for children in our communities. Anna collected 54 backpacks and over 250 school supplies items from members of our community prior to Hartland Kids Day! Thank you!
Connecting Local Businesses and Organizations to the community
Lake Country Family Fun wants to also thank all of the sponsors for making this day possible. There were more sponsors than ever before with over 85 local businesses and organizations present or represented in the goodie bags. Each of these businesses or organizations plays an active role in keeping our communities healthy and positive. Please check out the various sponsors and support them in the community.
We love reading through the feedback after the event. Check out this quote specifically relating to community connections:
