The Silver Strand Kids Activity Group held its first big event, a day at the beach, on Saturday, September 20, 2014. The event was organized by SSMHOA Board member, Eric Beane, also Chair of the Kids Activity Group, Block Captain Beth Holden-Garland and homeowner Jessica Schwarz. Homeowners Laurie Chryss and her husband Brady Connell designed the flyer. Gary Garland, along with the organizers, helped with the set-up and Nora Nicosia, Board Member was an advisor. Close to fifty parents and kids, ranging from toddlers to teenagers attended.
The sky was cloudy, but that didn’t deter those wanting to come. Around 11am, parents and kids could be seen pulling little wagon and strollers, loaded of beach toys and picnic lunches, along Roma Court and making their way up to the entryway to the Lighthouse Bridge. From there they walked to the beach and set up camp near the water.
There were all kinds of activities for every age group:
Sand Castle Building:
There was a lot of hula hooping:
Egg and Spoon Game: A conga line starts to form:
A Sweet Ending to a Sweet Event. The prizes, provided by Beth Holden-Garland, are handed out to the winners by her son Jackson.
