On March 30 Bent County Early Learning Center and CDS Head Start, both of Las Animas, held an Education Fair at Las Animals Elementary School.

Local businesses, as well as other agencies from surrounding counties, provided valuable information, hands-on activities and give-aways for families from surrounding counties including Bent, Otero, Crowley and Prowers. The businesses and agencies provided information to families about their services that are available to them and their families. The agencies explained the benefits to children and families to utilize their services.

By completing an A to Z scavenger hunt, families were able to choose a door prize drawing to enter that was raffled off at the end of the evening. Families also enjoyed a home cooked spaghetti dinner that was prepared by the Las Animas High School kitchen staff.

Bent County Early Learning Center would like to thank the 215 + people who attended, the volunteers, teachers and staff from BCELC, and CDS, and the businesses for their participation in making the BCELC Educational Fair a HUGE success! Another big thank you goes to the Colorado Health Foundation for contributing to the event. Without all of your support, this educational event would not have been possible.
