Good Times at Sept. 19 YLD Family Fun Day
The Young Lawyers Division (YLD) thanks everyone who came out to a sunny and warm Family Fun Day at Franklin Square on Saturday, Sept. 19. A great time was had by all of the kids, parents and kids-at-heart who joined in the mini golf, carousel rides and the other activities Franklin Square has to offer. The YLD thanks, especially, the sponsors who made the day possible, Metro Kids Club and Tall Pines Day Camp.
Metro Kids Club is an "everything kids" program. They offer kids fun in gymnastics, dance, karate, yoga, drama, music and art. Metro Kids Club has a full-time summer camp, mini camps during school closings, an after-school program and much more.
Beneath the cool shelter of magnificent trees that fill the air with the beautiful aroma of pine, Tall Pines Day Camp campers will experience the magic of summer. Campers at Tall Pines Day Camp will be able to choose from among many expertly guided, age-appropriate programs in athletics, nature, computers and the arts.
