August Fun Days
Middle school-age kids looking for something to do in August are invited to take part in Fun Days every Tuesday in August from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at SARA Park as part of Tomahawk-ABC, a community-wide anti-bullying campaign being sponsored by Kinship of Tomahawk. Free activities will include soccer, kick ball, flag football, strengthening/conditioning and an introduction to self-defense. Waiver forms can be picked up at the Kinship offi ce, 27 E. Wisconsin Ave., or the Tomahawk Leader, Tomahawk Pharmacy and Tomahawk Police Department. Parents are encouraged to stop by with their kids and check it out. The goal is to offer a safe environment for all kids –particularly those feeling bullied and the bystanders who may be uncertain how to react. Sportsmanship and building self-esteem are seen as essential in addressing bullying. The weekly event is offered weather-permitting. Forward questions to stopbullying@kinshiptomahawk.org or call Lonny at 715-453-7970.
