Family Fun Night

At Delmar-Harvard school the Parent-Teacher Association, or PTA, had a fair called Family Fun Night. The reason to have this fair was to make money to buy things for the school. I think the PTA used the money to buy a curtain for the auditorium.

Before Family Fun Night, every class was very busy making a game or activity for the other kids to do. One or two of the children's mothers, the teacher, and the children in every classroom worked together on these projects. My mother helped with making many signs to tell people what to do.

Finally, the day came when every class prepared its activity for that night: fun night. After school, we all went home, but we knew everything was ready. That evening around dinner time, every family came back to the school.

During fun night, the kids and mothers took a turn working at the class activity, like ring toss, other games, or selling food. When your work was over, you could try the other things. At some games, you would win a prize. I won a paper necklace called a lei. One class was selling hot dogs for the families to eat for dinner. Another class had ice cream, which was good because it was a very hot night.

A popular activity was a photographer who took photos of families for $1. This is our family's photo from that night. I think I was in fourth or fifth grade, Elaine was in kindergarten or first grade, and Arny was not in school yet. You can see the paper necklace that I had just won.
