There was steady flow of students during the Back to School Bash which was held on Tuesday night July 24, 2018 in the Edmonson County High School gym.
Vendors from the community set up booths to give out school supplies and other goodies. Community Education Director Lisa Whobery said “It’s a great opportunity for local organizations to reach the community and share information about their services, which in turn helps parents and guardians be made aware of local resources.”
Prizes and other gifts donated by local business and residents were given away throughout the night.
FFA students volunteered at the event to assist in setup, teardown, cleaning up and running booths. “We always do this to help out” said FFA Vice President Savannah Lindsey. “We enjoy giving back to the community because they do so much for us throughout the year.”
Whobrey added that the event was to get kids and their families excited for the return of school.
