KENDALL – Families gathered at Kendall Elementary School on Friday evening for the annual PTSA Family Fun Night.

“It’s a night for families to come together to have fun and get information,” Kendall Elementary Principal Sharon Smith said.

PTSA President Elisa Robinson said the event was free for families (with the exception of a basket raffle).

“People are so generous,” she said of those who donated or who came to set up informational and activity booths. “It’s an opportunity for families to have a nice evening and on Monday when students come back to school, they get to pick out a free book.”

Area groups and organizations set up tables to provide information for those attending. Participants included the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department, Kendall Fire Department and EMS, GCASA, YMCA, Fidelis Care, ESL students and parents, Cub Scouts, the Lego Builder Shop, and the Oak Orchard Yacht Club.

Marty Goodenbery and Cindy Ruiz offered fun, games, candy and information about the Kendall Community Food Cupboard at their table.
