South Franklin End of Summer Bash!!
The South Franklin Community Center hosted a neighborhood End of Summer Bash at the end of August. It was a huge success!! Tons of people from the neighborhood came to enjoy a free BBQ, carnival games, entertainment and to get information on community resources!
The BBQ portion of the event delicious! We had hot dogs, chips, cookies, and drinks. A very big THANK YOU to Wonder Bread, Costco, Macey's, Harmons, and Community Action Services and Food Bank for your very generous donations!
We had a volunteer DJ who kept the tunes coming while residents visited booths to find out more about programs and activities going on in their community. The following were all there:
-South Franklin Community Center Book Club
-South Franklin Soccer Program
-South Franklin Community Center Health Class
-South Community Center Tutoring
-Provo City Library
-Utah Community Credit Union
-Wasatch Mental Health
-Early Head Start
-United Way of Utah County
-Central Utah Center for Independent Living
There was also lots of fun entertainment! Jump for Joy donated a Combo Bounce House/Slide. Living Legends came and performed four dances!
There was face painting, hair spray-dying, and incredible balloon animals! There was also lots of carnival games!
Thanks to everyone who came, donated, and volunteered!!!
