The Junior Auxiliary of Tipton County (JATC) hosted their 3rd Annual Unplugged at Drummonds Playground and Park on Saturday, July 22 as part of the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries‘ national focus, “Keeping It Real In A Virtual World.”
In an effort to “flip the switch” and get UNPLUGGED families came out to the free community event which offered several “field day” type of activities, including potato sack races, obstacle courses, football toss, and parachute games. In addition to all the fun and games, the Quito Drummonds Fire Department taught kids about fire safety and gave a tour of their fire station, safety gear and fire engine.
“Unplugged aims to get children off electronics and outside to play and have fun”, said Rachael Henderson, JATC Project Chair. “It’s a fun event for the community, and for our members, to enjoy games, meet our neighbors and enjoy the outdoors.”
A special thank you goes to the Sno Cottage for providing snow cones to help cool off after our fun in the sun.
