The event was held April 23 at Kids America and was sponsored by Job and Family Services and other local community agencies and funded by the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund. About 400 children and 150 adults attended the event that is held in April because it is Child Abuse Prevention Month. “This is the first year we’ve held it at Kids America,” said Janet Ewings from JFS. “We usually hold it at the fairgrounds, but we’ve had weather issues and thought we would try down here. It’s worked out really well. The whole idea is for kids and parents to have fun together without there being a cost for the parents. It’s a nice way to build family time.” The event featured food, games, crafts, inflatables and displays by local agencies. Beacon photo by Josie Sellers

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
