Family Round Up Initial Press Release

Family Round Up
Cowboy Boot

“Howdy, Pardners!”  On Tuesday, September 26, 2017, the Lake Center Christian School will hold its 32nd Family Round Up at the Hartville Marketplace from 5:30 – 8:30 pm.  The community is welcome to attend our Annual Fund fundraiser.  You can be a part of something great! For seventy years we have been assisting Christian families, nurturing young minds, and serving our Lord by making a difference. Lake Center families, grandparents, churches, and friends have given for our school to be acces­sible to all Christian parents. You can be a part of a school where parents comment, “The change I have seen in my daughter since coming to LCCS has been miraculous.” Please give generously to our annual fund. Let’s “pardner” to continue our debt free legacy during this, our 70th anniversary year. We need to raise $82,629 to reach the goal established for this year’s annual fund.  Please pray that we will raise funds to help bridge the gap between the cost of tuition and the actual cost of obtaining an excellent Lake Center Christian School education.

The evening begins at 5:30 with the Dinner Bell Ringing. At 6:00 we have the Welcome, Prayer, and Pony Express arriving with what has been raised so far for the Annual Fund. Activities begin at 6:15.  We have inflatables, pony rides, petting zoo, a mechanical bull, horseshoes, corn hole, face painting, and lots of other fun activities for you.  A new event this year is our own operating jail! You can pay $2.00 to have a summons issued to have a victim arrested and taken to the jail at the Family Round Up. This victim is required to spend ten (10) minutes in jail, or pay $2.00 to bail themselves out. We are also holding contests for horseshoe, pie eating, a cowboy/cowgirl duds fashion show, and a bucking Bronco.  Please come and ride the rides, pet the animals, earn mustaches, eat, fellowship with one another, get in or out of jail, and ring the bell for providing a gift towards the Lake Center Christian School Annual Fund.

To make a reservation for dinner, please contact Sonia Bancroft, Event Coordinator, at sbancroft@lccs.com by Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at 5:00 pm.

(Dinner is free – donations are accepted)
