Devote a "Day for Kids" on September 20
October, 2008 - Issue #48
On Saturday, September 20 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. in Newhall Park, approximately 6,000 children and adults are expected to enjoy an entire day dedicated to kids. All activities are free - including entertainment, games, food, carnival rides and a raffle - making it one of the most family-friendly events of the year.

"Day for Kids is a special nationwide event focused on the importance of spending meaningful time with young people. Our event is already considered one of the top Day for Kids events across the country - and this is only our third year," says Jim Ventress, chief professional officer of the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley. "We are excited about partnering with the city and about 70 community organizations," he continues.

Research shows that when adults spend meaningful time with kids, it helps kids develop a positive self-image and a sense of belonging, usefulness and purpose. The Families and Work Institute's study, "Ask the Children," found that while children are happy with the amount of time their parents spend with them, they wish the time together was not rushed, but focused and rich in shared activities; 254-CLUB
