The Webb House on Friday ended a summer hiatus and kicked off a new year with a giant water slide, a barbecue, and a campfire with ‘smores.
According to Webb House volunteer Jim North, about 140 youngsters enjoyed the water slide, starting with children from the Greene County Early Learning Center and Natural Wonders Learning Center early in the day, elementary children during the afternoon, and sixth through eight graders in the evening.
The Webb House is open most Friday nights during the school year to provide a fun, safe, substance-free place for kids in grades 6-8 to get together.
It is owned by the First United Methodist Church but relies on other churches and service organizations to provide volunteer chaperones.
There are still open months on the chaperone schedule for the coming school year. Any interested persons or organizations can contact Pastor Julie Poulsen at 515-386-4411.
