Back in August, select volunteers from the Board of Directors assisted with the Clown Carnival, a benefit for childrens' bereavement camps, at the Sedgwick County Extension Center.  We had an AWESOME time teaching kids to bowl and helping them earn coins for prizes!  The most dedicated volunteers even dressed as clowns.  Check out our album on Facebook!
