On Thursday night at about 6 p.m. the playground at Twin Lakes Recreation Center was covered in kids from Fairview Elementary.
They were there for the second event of the semester — a PTA Wellness Night. Families get together the first Thursday of the month. This Thursday the event was a stroll around the path at Twin Lakes.
“Last month we had around 50 to 60 kids show up,” said Lisa Monsees, who is head of wellness for the PTA. “It was a ‘night recess’ event. Everybody had a lot of fun.”
She came up with the idea for Wellness Nights from friends with children at other nearby elementary schools, like Russell Boulevard, which has a similar program.
