The annual Back To School Bash drew a large crowd of Edmonson County students, their friends, and families last night as event goers enjoyed a Star Wars-themed evening filled with games, prizes, and free school supplies at ECHS.
"This was a great opportunity to help families prepare for the upcoming school year," said Lynette Saling with the Family Resource Center. "We couldn't do this event without all the great vendors, businesses, donors, and our schools and their PTO's."
The event is sponsored each year by the Family Resource/Youth Service Centers, the Edmonson County Health Department, and Community Education.
All local schools set up booths so attendees could meet principals and some of the faculty and staff, while local businesses were set up handing out info and free goodies.
"We also want to send out a special thanks to our local FFA club for setting up the event and clean up," Saling added. "They were here all day. It's just been a great event."
