Kids Cafe Fifth Year (2017)

Kids’ Café Fifth Year a Success

What an accomplishment! Thank You so much to each and every individual, company, and organization that donated in any way to Kids’ Café. Children and parents have been so appreciative of everyone’s efforts, and the fun activities.

Watsontown Kids’ Café serves free,  nutritious  meals to all children on week  days during summer break in a safe and enjoyable environment.  Every week there is “Library Day.”  Every month there is Birthday Cupcakes Day,  Milkshakes Day,  and Ice Cream Treat Day.  This year some special days that were enjoyed included “Hawaiian Luau Day,”   “Minion Day,” “Super Hero Day,” “Safety Day” (police, police horse & car), “Pickle Day,” Stromboli & Pizza Days,  and Root Beer Floats
