LC Basketball Teams Volunteer at Sandusky Elementary School
LYNCHBURG, VA – On Saturday October 20, 2012 members of the Lynchburg College Men's and Women's Basketball team volunteered their time to help run a field day festival for children of the community at Sandusky Elementary School. The men's team volunteered for the morning hours from 10-12, while the women's team arrived at noon and stayed to finish out the day at 2 pm.
The festival had an array of activities for the children including a dunking booth, pony rides, a petting zoo, moon bounces, face painting, snacks, and a variety of other games.
It was a warm, clear fall day in Lynchburg filled with smiles and laughter from both children and players alike. The student-athletes aided in lifting children onto ponies and then walking them around the lower field. Additionally they took tickets and provided directions at the dunking booth, football toss, baseball throw, bowling station, and candy picking tree. Several members also made snow cones and popcorn for the children. The experience was extremely enjoyable for all those involved and overall a great day spent in the fresh air.
