An organization in the Poconos is giving back to the community while bringing families together for a fun outdoor event. The Poconos Chapter of the Latin American Motorcycle Association is holding a youth day on Saturday.
It will take place from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Dansbury Park in East Stroudsburg. Fun activities will run all day for kids like three-legged races, tug of war along with balloon animals. An organization member tells us after a year of canceled events for both the organization and for the school it will be nice to give the kids a fun afternoon.
"We wanted to have something where all the kids could come out, have a day out... We're going to make hot dogs and hamburgers and we're going to have games for them to play with. So, we wanted to also involve the community because we know that in the schools here as well their events were canceled," Alby Acevedo, LAMA Secretary, said.
They will be serving food and drinks for a small donation, but kids eat for free. All proceeds will go to scholarships for kids at local schools.
