Incoming University Students Host Back to School Fair for Area Children

08/24/12

Members of The University of Scranton’s Class of 2016 will help area children and their families prepare for the upcoming school year with a Back to School Bonanza community fair from 1 to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 26 at Lackawanna County Courthouse Square.

The fun-filled event, geared for children from 3 to 12 years old and their families, will consist of educational games, prizes, refreshments, music and other activities. It is open to the public, free of charge. Reservations are not required, although children must be accompanied by an adult. The event will be cancelled if there is heavy rain.

The fair is a new way for Scranton’s incoming class to participate in community service during their fall move-in weekend.

Back to School Bonanza is sponsored by the University’s Center for Student Engagement in cooperation with the Center for Service and Social Justice, the Office of Community Relations and Lackawanna County.
