Couldn’t be beat! It was perfect weather for the annual K of C Family Appreciation Day, Saturday, June 24, 2017, at the K of C Centre on Guelph Street. MC and GK Dave Obermeyer welcomed over 100 family and friends to a full day of food, fun and frolic that began at 2:00 pm.
It was a jam-packed day that featured the ever-popular Brave Knight Bouncy Castle, fun-filled Dunk Tank and a display presented by the Region of Waterloo Paramedic Services. Vesta, the clown, demonstrated her skill at making balloon animals and her artistic ability of face-painting. The active Family Appreciation Day was topped off with Chef Wayne Buchholtz doing his wonders with food at the BBQ.
Organizer Mike van Lammeren and his hard-working crew of several dedicated volunteers were responsible to make the event the success it was. Sean and Amanda Meaney prepared the food, Mike and Max Salman, aided by Francis Du, set up and handled the registration desk, while Francis was doing double-duty handing out Freezies to the kids.
A big thank you to Piller’s, Lay’s, Zehr’s and Shopper’s Drug Mart for their generous donations. A good time was had by all and looking forward to next year’s event.
