MOUNT AYR — Ringgold County Youth Pod (H.E.L.P.) is hosting an event for children 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

H.E.L.P. has rented out Princess Theater and Lucky Lanes in Mount Ayr and invited guest readers to share stories at Mount Ayr Public Library.

All kindergarten through second graders from Diagonal and Mount Ayr elementary schools have been invited to participate.

Children can spend time doing crafts and listening to guest readers (MACS and DCSD teachers and administrators) at the public library and bowling at Lucky Lanes in the morning, and then, after a pizza lunch, go over to Princess Theater for a showing of a holiday movie and popcorn snack.

The event is supported by Ringgold H.E.L.P. Youth Pod through what is considered a proactive grant. The grant’s “recipients” are the parents who drop off their kids for a day of fun while they have some “time off.”
