Fun Time Friday is a program designed for the learning and developmental needs of preschoolers and toddlers. Children attend with a parent, grandparent, or caregiver on a drop-in basis without pre-registration.

Later that night, Family Date Night will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. This monthly event offers families a time to learn, explore and play at the center. Friday night’s theme will be “Home is Where the Heart is.”

A light meal will be served, to go along with puppet shows, music, inflatable, crafts and more. The cost is $5 per person; $2 per member and free for children 1 and younger.

Special medallions bearing the image of B-rrry Bear, the official race mascot, are presented in 13 age divisions for men and women. The B-rrry Challenge encourages area organizations to get involved while competing for the top award. Participants include the name of their Challenge Team on the registration form.

People need to be registered by midnight Thursday to receive an accurate time using the latest disposable chip timing and have a name and time printed in the Clinton Herald newspaper.
