We had a BLAST 2016

Kids Central, Inc.’s annual BLAST was held May 6th at Bullitt Park. KCI invited families to enjoy a day with their child to celebrate the hard work both have dedicated this program year. Activities included face painting, groovy flowers, lava bottles, making healthy trail mix and tie dye tote-bags to celebrate our theme a Groovy BLAST. The local rescue squad and fire truck were also on display for families and children to explore. Several Kids Central partners from the community set up vendor tables to assist our families in getting resources. WIC, Health Dept. car seat program, Wise County Schools, Health Connect, and MEOC to name a few. Families were then able to sit down to lunch with their child’s classroom and enjoy pizza from Pizza King.
