The Town of Potts Camp held another successful Fun Day for Kids on Saturday, June 18.
The mayor and board of aldermen, along with other volunteers, prepared food and assisted with games throughout the day.
More than 100 hamburgers, hotdogs, funnel cakes, snow cones and other food items were served to the large crowd in attendance. Several homemade cakes were on hand for the cake walk. Along with the many activities available, bouncing inflatables provided entertainment for the children. Winners of the annual egg toss were Delaney Howell and Christopher Rowland.
The highlight of the day was “Little Obie,” the miniature train. Engineer Rusty Dowding of CN Railroad said this was his last year, as he is retiring after 37 years with the railroad. An associate will take his place next year.
Also on hand to assist with train rides were Paul Rose (who came up with the idea of the train and built the first one while working in Memphis, Tenn.) and his wife Dorothy. The purpose of the train is to teach rail safety to children.
Live music was provided by Mitch Stone, Electric Rodeo Band 2 (David Daniels and Michael Howell), and Angie Vanzant.
Mayor Ricky Lesure said, “This event could not be held without the many who donated their funds as well as their time for the enjoyment of the children and adults. Thanks to everyone who had a hand in making this year’s event possible.”
He said that he was well pleased with the turnout this year and is making plans for next year’s Fun Day 4 Kids.
