The last day of St. James’ Summer Youth Program was Wednesday, August 26, 2015. We celebrated the end of St. James’ Youth Summer Program with an inflatable bouncy house and a waterslide. It was open to all of St. James’ children, ages 4-10 years, and we extended an invitation to the children from the Iglesias Episcopal St. James/Santiago, ages 4-10 years, to play with us. The party started at 9:00 AM and ended at 5:00 pm.
The kids had a blast! They jumped, slid, made beaded necklaces, perfected their tricks, and played “lions” in the lion’s den (bouncy castle). None of the kids stopped to eat lunch. They would take a pause to graze the snack table, eat popsicles, and drink water. Several church members showed up to help with the party. A special thanks to Sally and Jed Doyle, Merriley Smith, Ann Nangle, Jeff Engh, Christina Robertson, and Father Bob for being available to assist with watching kids and keeping them safe.
We understand that most of the kids went home tired and some even fell asleep early that night! Success!!
