Children’s Festival at the Danbury Market

childrens_festival_2014We had a great turn out for the Children’s Festival in Danbury, NC at Pioneer Hospital on June 20th.

Many local non-profits and groups were present. The Stokes County Sheriff’s Department made free Kids ID cards, the Health Department gave free eye exams. Stokes County Cooperative Extension had a great minute-to-win-it came and discussed ATV safety. Stokes County WIC was there giving out information to prospective and recent parents. Hanging Rock State Park had a great educational booth where kids could look at several animal skulls and pelts. The fire department was there with their mobile trailer teaching kids about house fire safety. The art teacher from North Stokes was on hand to paint faces and of course there were local meat, vegetable, herb, soap and other produce vendors. Despite the rain shower early in the afternoon, the event was a huge success!

The children’s festival was announced in our local paper! Read the article by Nicholas Elmes.
