A group of individuals from the Starke County Pride and Leadership Task Force and Moving Starke County Forward are in the early stages of planning a community family fun day. Right now they are still looking for volunteers willing to help out with the planning process. Some of the ideas that have been brainstormed so far are a scavenger hunt, various pre-approved, family-friendly musical acts and some other outside-the-box ideas that combine learning and fun.
They are still looking for leadership assistance. Any interested individuals should attend their next meeting on Tuesday, July 8 from 3 until 5 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Starke County Library, Knox branch. Mary Jane Bendt is looking for suggestions and can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
