Spending

'Meaningful

Time' Is

The Goal

BY O.J. EARLY

STAFF WRITER

Sunday proved to be a fun day for local children.

More than 1,500 people -- including plenty of smiling kids -- attended the annual Greeneville and Greene County Day for Kids at Hardin Park.

The free event was hosted by the Boys & Girls Club of Greeneville & Greene County, Grand Rental Station, the Greeneville Department of Parks and Recreation, and the Youth Builders of Greeneville.

"Day for Kids is set aside to foster stronger relationships between adults and children by educating them on the importance of spending meaningful time together," said Scott Bullington, chairman for this year's event and the director of the Boys & Girls Club of Greeneville & Greene County.

"Day for Kids will hopefully help facilitate open communication between parents, mentors and kids not just today, but all year long," he said.

The event, from 2 to 5 p.m., included inflatable rides, face-painting and carnival games. Police cars and fire engines were also available for participants to check out.

According to Bullington, face-painting was particularly popular with this year's batch of youngsters.

More than 300 children "left looking like Batman, Spiderman, cheetahs, cats and assorted other characters," he said.

Tim Bowman, of the Greeneville Parks & Recreation Department, liked how the event went.

"I am very pleased with how the event turned out and delighted to see all of the parents and grandparents that were present to spend an afternoon with the children of our community at Hardin Park," he said.

"The Parks & Recreation is honored to be a part of an event celebrating our youth."
