Wonderful Wednesdays in Kennett

First Christian Church in Kennett invited the First Presbyterian Church and the newly constructed Community Kitchen to partner for five weeks of Wonderful Wednesdays this summer. Children in grades 1-8 have engaged in active games, art activities, cooking nutritious foods, learning about healthy snacks, and harvesting produce at the Community Garden. The idea grew from last summer's afternoon open recreation for children in the church, who suggested to Pastor Doug that the events be expanded to include more children. This year the church partnered with two other groups to expand the activities and to rotate locations between the organizations. Wonderful Wednesdays have tied into the Healthy Schools/Healthy Communities initiative that strives to get kids more active and become aware of what they eat.
