Picnic in the Park


On August 24th, Northmont City Schools held it’s “Picnic In The Park” event.  The event was held at Centennial Park, and it included things such as bouncy houses and food. The event also served as a fundraiser, and help center for tornado victims and kids with trauma from the past Memorial Day events. Parents who came to the event would be given packets of information regarding things like how to help kids who are going through tough times like this, and where you can get trauma help. Kids who came enjoyed the arts and crafts, such as coloring sheets, and making your own stress balls. The event was a big success and lots of items such as food and toys were donated to the middle and high school pantries. This event shows the action of a community coming together to help, and inform people how to get help and heal.
