It was all smiles at the Moon Bounce Party!

Well, the end of Summer Fun is here yet again so this year we decided to end it with a huge celebration of new and old friends, yummy treats, and photographed memories.  Over 130 Summer Fun participants and their families attended the Moon Bounce bash at the Botanical Garden at the Cooperative Extension Office.

A musical slideshow played continuously inside where folks gathered to eat hotdogs and laugh at moments captured in time.  Outside there were two moon bounce houses, a putt-putt challenge, ring toss, and popcorn.  Candy and 4-H tattoos and stickers were given as prizes to game participants.  A 4-H Goodie Basket was raffled during the night that was stuffed with 4-H themed items.  The winner of the basket was Adrienne Walton.

Adrienne was the winner of the 4-H Goodie Basket! The basket included a t-shirt, cups, Centennial cookbook, and more!

Participants were also able to pick up a copy of the slideshow on a CD to take home and enjoy with their family.  All of the Summer Fun pictures will be uploaded to a Shutterfly account for parents to download and make prints.

The end was bittersweet.  So many fond memories were made during the summer of 2010 but we had to say goodbye to Summer Fun coordinator Angie Lawrence.  Angie did an AWESOME job this summer and she will truly be missed.  We hope she will be able to join us again next year!  We would also like to thank all of the volunteers and teens who helped us with the party, taught a summer fun class, or helped with planning.  We have top notch volunteers in Brunswick County!
