Happy summer everyone!
School is out and the sun in shining, and we are excited to see steadily increasing vaccine numbers in Whatcom County. The Family Council is happy to be hosting our first in-person Generations Forward event in over a year. We hope that this all-ages, free event will be a source of healing, joy, and connection for families and kids in our community. Our Family Night will take place at the Bellingham Sportsplex on Saturday, July 24 from 4:00 - 7:00pm - mark your calendars! Please email us with any accessibility needs or questions. So, what can you expect from this event? There will be a wide variety of activities for all ages, including...
Sports and bouncy house fun
A kids clothing and backpack swap - bring clean items you'd like to donate and take home something special
Performances from local artists and storytellers
Crafting corner - decorate your own t-shirts and paper masks
Free pizza for all :-)
Tabling from local groups, and a Family Resource Booth to connect with family-serving orgs in Whatcom County
We need your help to make Family Night really shine!
Share our Facebook event and invite your friends
Please let us know if you would be interested in volunteering to help with the setup, takedown, or leading activities (which we will provide) at our Family Night.
If you are connected with a group that might be interested in tabling or sharing a performance, we'd love to hear from you!
Thanks everyone, we will see you there!
