YMCA And Health Department Partner To Provide ‘Fun Friday’
The Owen County Family YMCA and the Owen County Health Department encourage all children to make physical exercise part of their daily play. Running, jumping, swimming, biking... all reduce anxiety, help maintain a healthy body weight, and curb the risk of countless diseases both now and later in life.
In an effort to start each weekend off right for elementary school children, Fun Friday is scheduled for every Friday that Spencer-Owen Community Schools are in session, beginning September 7. Children, ages 5-12, are invited to attend immediately following school dismissal until 6:00 p.m. Bus transportation is available from Spencer Elementary and McCormick’s Creek Elementary. Experienced counselors will lead youth in active games, swimming, sports, and other activities designed to teach teamwork and sportsmanship while instilling in them a love of physical activity.
Parents may register their children for Fun Friday during regular business hours at the Owen County Family YMCA. Cost is just $5 per day for members and non-members. Enrollment and payment must be complete by the Wednesday prior to attending. For more information, call 828-9622, or visit: www.owencountyymca.org.
