Lutheran Village at Wolf Creek celebrates its 10th birthday with Family-A-Fair event

On September 15, Lutheran Village of Wolf Creek hosted "Family-A-Fair," the village's annual fun-filled day of family activities.

Hundreds of area residents turned out to help Lutheran Village celebrate its 10th birthday. Designed to promote stronger families, the event also offered parents tips on keeping their children safe in crowds.

Sue Boyne, marketing director, said this year's event was huge. "We quadrupled the attendance from last year," she said, adding that the parking lot at Lutheran village and at a nearby church were filled to capacity.

She expressed her appreciation to area bakeries for supplying birthday cakes. The bakeries were Wixey, Cake Arts, Sweet Occasions, Meijer on Conant Street, Kroger and Walmart.

In addition to sweet treats, the event featured entertainment by the Delta Pantherettes, American Sports Karate, Sparks, Springfield High School ROTC, FX Dance Academy, Toledo K-9 Performance Academy, Wolf Creek YMCA and the SETT Institute.

Children's activities were sponsored by area businesses.  Children had the opportunity to play games, enjoy arts and craft activities and learn how to escape a structure fire in the Springfield Township fire safety trailer.

Health screenings, demonstrations and refreshments were provided at no cost throughout the day.
