Lions Kids Day July 4

After a quirk of the calendar that only happens once every six years, the Lion’s Club Kids Day will return to the Fourth of July this year.

The annual field day of fun and competition presented by the Granville Lions Club welcomes kids to this fun, active event starting at 9:30 a.m. at the Granville Little League fields. Organizer Maryanne Lynch said the events will relocate slightly from their usual spot due to the construction at the Little League complex. Families should look just a bit deeper into the park for the event fields, she said.

On July 4 the Lions Club will gather in the grass off to the eastern side of the Richards Memorial Little League fields to hold events for kids from 4 to 13 including three-legged race, hurdles, running events, balloon races, the long jump, shuttle run and the backward race and to cap off the event – the Tug of War.

Ribbons will go out to winners in each event for first, second and third place.

All kids receive a free Kids Day t-shirt and a Stewart’s Shop coupon good for a free ice cream.

Watermelon and cold drinks are provided after the fun. This event will not be rescheduled due to inclement weather.

Parents are asked to come a little early as they will need to register their children for the event.

Lions Club Kids Day has been held since the Granville Lions Club came into existence which is now 51 years ago.

“If you’re interested in seeing what a part of being in the Lions Club is all about come down to Kids Day where the kids aren’t the only ones having a great time,” Lynch said.
