Thursday was a perfect day to be in the park. It was cool, but not too cool. The sun was out and the sky was so blue. Before the KCEOC van even arrived, there were children waiting. Some were playing soccer and running in the park, cries of glee and having fun. The van appeared on College Street and pulled into the parking lot and the children came running and lined up…waiting.
A handwashing stand was put out (that’s what you see in this photo). The children washed their hands and received their lunches, going to the picnic tables to eat them. A total of 14 children ate lunch in St. John’s Park yesterday…. Thank you, members of St. John’s for all of your support and care of the park, providing food and joy to the children in our community.
