TR KAY group to hold annual "Girls Rock and Boys Roll" Saturday, April 21, from 9:00-Noon, at the St. John Lutheran PAC. The high school KAY members will host a fun morning for kids ages pre-school-6th grade. It's a fundraiser for the club. Each year, the KAYs sponsor a large project to provide a service for their community while raising funds to give away to a deserving family or families in the community. This project also qualifies the club for their "Gold Award" through the national KAY organization.

Girls will get pampered with nail painting, hair curling, and a little makeup. Games are also played and crafts assembled to finish the morning. Boys get to play several games with the HS kids while participating in a craft and enjoying a snack with everyone.

Registration forms went home with all the kids through the school, but additional forms are available at both the middle school and elementary offices. Call and leave a message with Robin Billings at 476-2692 if you have questions. Please enroll your kids by the 18th so we know how to plan. We won't turn anyone who registers later away though!! The cost is $15/child. Thanks again for your support of KAYs and for being willing to help us help others!!
