What an awesome success the 2016 Stone County School Readiness Fair turned out to be!! Over 300 kiddo’s were served with dental and vision screenings, opportunity for free sports physicals and immunizations along with a free pair of new athletic shoes and socks while being provided with helpful information for their families. The day rounded out with fun in the Bounce House as well as a hug from the one and only Smokey the Bear. Hot Dogs and Frito Pie closed the day before the kiddo’s picked up their backpack and supplies heading out better prepared for the new school year. Huge thanks to all the vendors and volunteers who made this event possible and especially to Reeds Spring School District and staff for opening up the high school auxiliary gym along with other areas – without their big hearts and incredible facility, it could not have happened.
OMC Love INC feels so privileged to have the honor of organizing and hosting the Stone County School Readiness Fair annually. And, to witness how all of the Stone County businesses, ministries and churches eagerly worked together in order to make this event a success just represents the true community spirit that prevails within Stone County. Thank you for your generosity in volunteerism, supplies, concessions and commitment. Without you – we could not pull it off!!
