A Westside Family Fun Day--A Party with a Purpose
was held Saturday, March 9 at Carver High School. The event was produced by the Brighter Futures Task Force which is chaired by the Samaritan Counseling Center's Executive Director, Cary Kuhlmann.
The purpose was to provide parents information on the challenges of raising children: bullying/suicide; raising a child in the digital age; the strong willed child; and grandparenting.
The event kicked off with an opening session featuring Mayor Todd Strange; Montgomery County Commission Chair, Elton Dean; Judges J.R. and Monet Gaines; and Willie Durham, 2019 President of the Montgomery Chamber of Commerce who keynoted the session.
There were over 100 attendees, 30 volunteers from the Carver High School service clubs; and 11 exhibitors in a resources expo. The Fun Day closed out with a performance by the Carver High School Band. Thanks to Carver Principal, Gary Hall, for hosting the event.
