Kids honored at annual event

Stand for Children Day gives thanks, fun to youngsters

Using oversized scissors, several kids gathered around to cut a red ribbon, signaling the start of Stand for Children Day.

At 9 a.m., children, parents and community leaders gathered on Western Kentucky University’s South Lawn for the 10th annual event, which was dedicated to children.

“We’re full of energy,” said Ann Grubbs, enrichment coordinator for Community Education. “We know how important kids are. They’re the future. And every year there’s more awareness, which is what it’s all about.”

A theme generally accompanies Stand for Children Day, she said, but with this being the 10th year, they decided to let loose.

Music blasted from speakers as children and community education summer camp groups went from table to table, gathering information and goodies from vendors such as the ALIVE Center, American Bank & Trust – a sponsor of the event – and Bowling Green City Schools. The Medical Center was also present to promote its Healthy Kids Club.
