The Friendly City

At the Library

No clowning around…Ronald McDonald utilized his clowning skills such as balancing, juggling, magic, puppetry and more to cover important topics facing today’s youth — topics such as anti-bullying, leadership, friendship, and the characteristics it takes to be a Super Hero. Our audience enjoyed a high-octane, highly-interactive show!

Great turnout for our first day of Super Hero Training Camp. Our story  was Daisy the firecow by Viki Woodworth. Each child that attended received their super hero name and created a medal that signified their super hero. We also played a game of laser tag through the stacks. Fun was had by all!
