Changes made to back to school bash

| August 9, 2013

COSHOCTON – There have been some changes made to the Gathering Back to School Bash, which is a community event where professional organizations, businesses, faith based organizations, governmental agencies and some local churches have partnered together to impact Coshocton County in a positive way.

The Gathering Back to School Bash will be held Saturday, Aug. 17. To kick things off, New Life Ministries is having a 5K and 10K race, which will start at 8 a.m. Contact New Life Ministries to get the details of the race. Following the race, at 1 p.m., the action begins at Kids America. Enter Kid’s America’s main entrance and register for the many activities going on during the day, visit the many informational booths and get a stamp to enjoy the numerous activities that will be provided. Bring a lawn chair to sit under a tent or in the sun and listen to some great Christian music and watch the K-9 demonstration. Students, if your bike needs repair, bring it and have someone help you get it working.

There will be prizes, drawings and giveaways throughout the day, so be prepared to stay and have some fun. You also can have lunch or dinner for a $1 (hotdog, chips, cookie and drink). Activities, such as, inflatables, sack race, toss games, kickball, ultimate frisbee and much more will be going on until 4 p.m.

Remember, this is a day for the entire family to have fun, eat, visit with friends, get some great information, and enjoy the last Saturday before the first day of school. Come to The Gathering Back to School Bash from 1-4, Saturday, Aug. 17, at Kid’s America and see how much your community cares about its people.

“It’s going to be an excellent fun time for all involved,” said Ken Stocker, who helped organize the event. “We are hoping to do it annually and have next year’s be bigger and better.”
