Backyard carnival raises funds for library
WAYNE COUNTY, PA — Karen Corrigan’s Preschool and Child Care Home recently held two fundraisers, a coin collection and backyard carnival, and the proceeds were donated to the Wayne County Public Library (WCPL). The carnival is held every year at the end of its summer camp program, with the school-age children working for days to sort out prizes and set up for the event. The day of the carnival, previous students return to help current school-age children operate games and activities. Prizes for the carnival are donated by current and past families, as well as local businesses and supporters from the community.
