Family AfFAIR scheduled for Saturday

SCOTTVILLE — The 32nd Family AfFAIR will be held on Saturday, March 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Mason County Central High School. The free community event has become a St. Patrick’s weekend tradition.

Every year hundreds of people from area businesses and community agencies provide a whole day of fun for local families. The 60-plus groups and organizations each year bring intriguing and entertaining hands-on activities for participants. Many hand out trinkets, informational items and snacks. Concessions are also available for the purchase of food (cash only).

Some activities include photo booths, arts and crafts, obstacle courses, bounce houses, balloon animals, carnival games, structure building and a free book bus parked out front, along with emergency vehicles. Some of the activities will take place in classrooms and others in the two gymnasium areas. Judges will also circulate incognito, deciding on who will get the award for the “Most Interactive Booth.”.

Last year’s award went to the Great Start to Quality Resource Center.

Each family will receive a special bag for all their treasures so make sure you use the front entrance of Mason County Central High School. Also remember to complete a survey of our event and be entered to WIN a $100 VISA gift card.

Children attending must be accompanied by an adult.
