Children in grades K-6 from all public and parochial elementary schools in Crawford County received free school supplies and played games for prizes at the fifth annual Back-To-School-Supply Carnival on Thursday  at the Bucyrus United Methodist Church’s Outreach Center, 216 Hopley Ave.

 
People of all ages enjoyed the carnival, which featured free games and prizes, refreshments, the Sulser Family Clowns, music by Sonix Sounds and an Info Fair.
 

Randy Garrett, general chair for the event said the carnival is meeting the needs of many families in the community.

"This is our way of letting the commuity know we understand we've got struggling families out there and we care. We want to help and so with the support of a $2,500 grant from the Walmart Foundation, we were able to buy more school supplies than we ever had before," Garrett said.

The suplies included basic items from each school's classroom lists.

Garrett said the Info Fair included more than 17 organizations with information and goodies to share with the families.
 

The event also featured a LifeStar ambulance, a Bucyrus City fire engine, a Bucyrus City School bus, and cruisers from the Bucyrus Police Department and Crawford County Sheriff's Office.

The carnival is sponsored by the church Missions and Outreach Committee and staffed by volunteers from the church and community at large.
