Are you and your young family looking to ring in 2013 with a bang? Check out the Family Fun New Year’s Eve Party being held at the Family Resource Centre.

This will be an action packed event, open to families with kids of all ages from 6 p.m. until 12:30 a.m.  Admission is free, however a snack item for a potluck table is requested, and any donations are appreciated.  Parents must accompany children.
The main event will start off focused on activities for the very little ones, including bouncy houses and carnival style games with prizes, with the first countdown occurring at 8 pm.  Later on we’ll be organizing group activities and enjoying great music followed by the second countdown at 10 pm.  The older kids can dance the night away until the last countdown at 12 midnight.  A glass of ‘bubbly’ will be provided for all in attendance at countdown times!
Throughout the evening there will a photo area available for family photos, a time capsule making station, crafts, board games, preschool playroom full of fun, a raffle table, and fresh popcorn and drinks available for sale at minimal prices.
