Greene looked up to the sky Wednesday and prayed the sun would come out and the rain would hold off. She really wanted to break the attendance record set two years ago when about 800 children came out for crafts in the park.
Every year, several day cares bring large groups of children and help boost those numbers, Greene said. This year was no different. Less than an hour after the event started, three day cares with about 50 kids showed up.
Among them were the kids of Crossroads Learning Corner.
“They love to come do this,” said Mary Baker, who brought the group out. “We let them have fun.”
Greene stood in the park and watched as kids moved from one craft to the next. She couldn’t think of a better job, she said.
“You can’t have a better job than being out in these beautiful parks and working with kids,” she said.
