Children honored during a Day for Kids celebration at Humphreys
Humphreys garrison, along with many other military installations and communities around the world, celebrated the joys of being kids during the 8th annual Boys & Girls Club of America Day for Kids. The Day for Kids is an initiative to reinforce parent, community member and leadersâ commitment to the well-being of the youth in communities.
The BGCA began the Day for Kids back in 2001 as a way for parents to remind children how special they are and to give kids a day just for them. Every September, the BGCA sets aside a day to celebrate children everywhere; this year's event drew out about 500 people to Independence Park.
The USAG-Humphreys Child, Youth and School Services sponsored this year's BGCA Day. There was a dance performance from the Korean American Youth Alliance or KAYA, a Tae Kwon Do demonstration, inflatable games, barbeque, face painting, raffles and more. The BGCA Day for Kid's Proclamation was given by David W. Frodsham, Deputy to the Garrison Commander, and Joseph Jacks, Area III School Liaison Officer on behalf of Col. Joseph Moore, Commander.
