Shriner's "Carnival"

A few of the Resiterns' women headed to Shriner's Burn Hospital on July 8th to host a "carnival" party for the patients and their families. Our "carnival" was complete with games such as "Spin-the-Wheel," a ring toss, bowling, lollipop tree, an arts and craft station and our biggest hit...a "Candy Walk" in lieu of a cake walk. The older kids LOVED the candy walk! Also a big hit were the prizes and snacks. Who doesn't love bouncy balls, bendable figures, candy, cookies, Capri Suns, cupcakes with sprinkles and popcorn? The kids and families at Shriner's sure loved it!

Resiterns wants to thank our members (and a friend of a member!) who were able to come in the middle of the day on a Friday afternoon. It was kind of a tricky time with our members who work and have kids, but it was a blast for those of us who were there, and it was a joy to see smiles on some sweet little faces. : ) Although we couldn't take pictures during the event due to hospital rules and privacy policies, we'll leave you with a picture of our volunteers. Thanks again, girls!
