We’re working hard to engage community members in getting to know each other and build relationships to build a healthier Buffalo County. So far, we’ve had our Community Block Party kits at the Kearney Area Children’s Museum, Healthy Kids Weekend, and Old Settlers in Pleasanton. Our next stop is Annevar in Ravenna, followed by our huge Block Party bash before the closing ceremonies of the Community Olympics.
Look for us a the south side of Harmon Park, near the fountain, on June 29th. We’ll be there from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. with tons of family fun (all for free). Check out what’s on the agenda:

  • Everyone’s favorite: a bounce house
  • Backyard hockey with the Tri-City Storm
  • D.I.Y. activities from our block party kits
  • Delicious, healthy snacks
  • Blend your own healthy smoothie on the Safe Routes to School bike blender
  • Kids crossfit presented by CrossFit Archway
  • A chance to win your own block party building kit
  • Facepainting
