The 2016 Hendricks County Community Youth Fair that They're Our Kids cohosted with Macaroni Kid - Hendricks is in the books!
A heartfelt THANK YOU goes out to all 55 of our vendors and all 1,542 people who visited the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Complex to experience the Youth Fair yesterday! Meghan Stritar of Macaroni Kid - Hendricks and I had no way of predicting how many people would attend, and we are both thrilled by how many folks turned out, even in the frigid temperatures!
As with any event that I help plan and execute, I'm making notes on things that worked well and things that could use improvement for next year. (Without hesitation, Meghan and I agree that there will definitely be a next year!) But I need more feedback than what I experienced first-hand.
So here is a request for feedback -- in the form of two quick and easy polls and a request for a comment -- from all Villagers who attended the Hendricks County Community Youth Fair on Feb. 13.
Hopefully by now you've heard of the Hendricks County Community Youth Fair that They're Our Kids is co-hosting with Macaroni Kid - Hendricks this Saturday, Feb. 13 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Center in Danville.
Ever since last year's Hendricks County Youth Sports Fair that we hosted together at Danville Community High School was such a big success, we've been talking about hosting a bigger youth fair that encompasses all sorts of organizations, resources and opportunities for Hendricks County youth.
Meghan Stritar of Macaroni Kid - Hendricks was able to secure us the Exposition Hall at the Fairgrounds, and we've spent months since that time planning this event.
With the Hendricks County Community Youth Fair coming up this weekend, I want to let everyone know what we have on tap.
GUEST BLOGGER MEGHAN STRITAR
As a parent, I am continuously thinking about how we are preparing the next generation to run this world. I think about our environmental choices and financial planning.
One key piece many people are not thinking about is social media.
This is new territory for us. I remember sitting at a teacher training when Facebook first became a ‘thing,’ and the heated discussion was based on if social media was going to stay around or not. Well, I think it is -- and growing tremendously with Twitter, Vine, Instagram, Periscope, and probably a new one this week that I’m too uncool for.
We all know that kids learn from watching us and following our lead. What are we communicating to OUR KIDS on social media channels for all to see?
