Superstar Party

Posted on: May 22, 2017

“Our final Superstar party of the year was a HUGE success! We were lucky enough to have leadership students from WAHS come and put on “Minute to Win It” games for us to enjoy. We got to ride scooter boards, use balloons to move cups across tables, eat cookies off our own faces, blow ping pong balls across water-filled cups, and try to pick up skittles with straws! It was a great party and the kids had a wonderful time. A special thanks to the West Albany leadership class who came and set everything up for us – you guys are the best!!”
