Bicycle Drive Set-up for School-aged Children

On Saturday, July 31, from 11:00 am – 1:30 pm children and families are invited to Rose Park, 1515 Locust St. in Terre Haute for the annual FREE “We Live!” back-to-school bash, presented by Hamilton Center, Inc., and sponsored by First Farmers Bank & Trust.

The free event will feature lots of fun activities for children, including games, giveaways, bounce houses, and a 3-on-3 basketball tournament, as well as live music and free food. Several community partners will also be on hand to provide information on resources that are available in our community, such as healthcare navigation services, and information on after-school programming and vaccinations.

“This year we feel that this event is more important than ever before,” said Melvin L Burks, CEO of Hamilton Center, Inc. “After a challenging year, we want to give these kids and their families a good first step towards recovery from their struggles.”
