United Way of Lamar County’s 2nd Annual Community Block Party
The United Way of Lamar County’s 2nd Annual Community Block Party & 2014 Campaign Kick-Off had an amazing turnout at the Lamar County Fairgrounds! Local businesses and charitable organizations from all over the area set up booths in celebration of living united. Families mingled as the kiddos played games and filled bags with goodies. Bounce houses and more lined the outside of the main building. Local emergency services were on scene showing support even “Sparky” the Paris Fire Department’s beloved mascot! As I was snapping a photo of the friendly group from Heart to Heart Hospice, kids from out of nowhere flooded the center of the building as a handful of former professional football players, from Keith Davis & Associates were signing autographs and arm wrestling with their youthful fans. Just down the way on Gene Watson Boulevard the 3rd Annual United Way Volleyball Tournament was happening while live music on the main stage had the crowd entertained throughout the day. It was quite a turnout this year and the perfect way to kick off the new campaign.
