October 19, 2009
CASEY GARRISON - The Army Community Services gave all Soldiers and civilians stationed in Warrior Country an opportunity to have fun with their Family members in observance of National Children's Day Sept. 26 at the USAG-Casey Bowling Alley. The event was free for all Soldiers and Family members.
"We just wanted to have a fun day for parents and children," said Linda Hough, ACS division chief. "We encourage them to come out to all of our events and we are glad to see more than 50 Families from Area 1 out today having a good time."
The event began with bowling free of charge for the families in attendance that went on the entire afternoon as well as activities for the children including a face painting and removal tattoo stand and a raffle for various prizes. The stands were ran by ACS volunteers as well as volunteers from the Pear Blossom Cottage and the United Services Organization who provided a barbecued lunch for the families.
"I am really glad that I came out, my children love to play and love to bowl and I am glad that Camp Casey is providing events for my kids and other children," said Mary Borges, an Army Spouse living in the USAG-Casey community.
