Easter Egg hunt delivers Family fun
By Ms. LaTrice Langston (IMCOM)March 29, 2018
The Fort Jackson community came together March 24 to provide a day full of fun activities for the entire Family during the Child, Youth Services, annual Spring Jamboree and Egg Hunt.
The event at the Youth Services Complex included age group egg hunts, bounce houses, obstacle courses and potato sack races, all designed to encourage an active life style.
Chapin Talbot, Assistant Director for Youth Sports and Fitness says the best part of the Spring Jamboree and Egg Hunt is seeing the children happy and participate in physical activity.
"I love kids and I'll do anything I can to make sure a kid that lives the military lifestyle can have fun safe events to participate in every time," Talbot said.
For some Families the Spring Jamboree and Egg Hunt is their first introduction to the Fort Jackson military community.
Devonda Summers, Assistance Director for Parent Central Services and Outreach for Child Youth and School Services, the Spring Jamboree was her first event with CYS Fort Jackson.
"I'm so excited and thrilled to see all the children enjoying all the festivities to bring in spring," she said.
Summers said the ultimate pay off was "seeing how the Fort Jackson community comes together to serve the Soldiers and their Families."
