Thanks to all who helped with BZS Center summer kickoff
The pre-dedication of the KFW (Katie Fennell Washington) Exercise Room was held on Saturday, June 11, with the kickoff of the “Art of Chess” taught by Mr. Carl Coffin, chess master from the Colleton County Memorial Library and Susan Snow, personal trainer with FitCare, with the KFW Exercise Class, that will be held every 2nd and 3rd Tuesday beginning July 12th and July 19th from 6-7 p.m. in the BZS Community Center, located 375 Smyly Road, Ruffin, with fitness trainer Magdline Monroe.
Then on 2nd and 4th Saturdays from 2-4 p.m. “The Art of Chess” with Chess Master Carl Coffin, as well as with different “Mind-Works” presentations, will be shown for the youth on 2nd & 4th Saturday’s ages 6-17 years old.
Hand-In-Hand Community Outreach would like to thank all who came, participated and supported behind the scenes to make the pre-dedication and kickoff of the Ruffin Summer Fun a great success: Annie Washington Burgess, daughter of Mother Katie Fennell Washington; Alice B. Jackson, Lillie Mae Bryant, Daisy Lee Jenkins, Gloria Brown, Pernice Jones, Mona Lisa Hodges, Evangelist Mattie Taylor, Essie R. Bowles, Trey Bartley, Aubreanna Eady, Mykaylah Chisolm and Vivian McFadden.
A special thank you to the Coastal Community Foundation (N.E.W. Fund) for the grant award which has made it possible to work towards renovating the room that will be used for the exercise class and provided the resources to help the youth to participate in Mind-works. It is a true saying “A mind is a terrible thing to waste”. The youth will be challenged to think outside the box and gain cognitive skills.
So all are encouraged to come and be a part of the Ruffin Summer Fun from ages 6-100+ years old. ALL are welcome.
