Photos: Residents Enjoy Family Fun at June Fair

Put on by the Ferndale Elementary PTA, the all-schools event at Roosevelt on Friday was staffed by more than 100 parent and student volunteers.

A rainy day was no match for the fun that volunteers had in store for the community at the on Friday.

Kids of all ages, parents and neighbors came out to to enjoy food, games, face-painting, a rock-climbing wall and more as part of the annual end-of-the-school-year celebration.

Put on by the Ferndale Elementary PTA, the all-schools event was staffed by more than 100 parent and student volunteers.

Other attractions included a dunk tank - with kindergarten teacher Heather Urbanowicz volunteering to be dunked - a bake sale, inflatables and performances by the Ferndale Middle School/Ferndale High School choir and band.

Roosevelt teacher Janet Monroe said she's been attending the event for around 50 years - ever since she went to school in Ferndale as a child.

"It's an end of the year celebration and everyone likes to come out for it," said Monroe, who was helping out at the bake sale.

Kyle Durant, a 10th grade student who was volunteering at the June Fair, said he already earned the volunteering credits he needs for the National Honor Society but wanted to help out at the fair anyway. "I just like helping other people," he said. "I just do it for the fun."

The same goes for 16-year-old FHS student Angelica Davis, who is also part of the National Honor Society. "I just wanted to work with the little kids at the school," Davis said. "It's fun."

All proceeds from the event will go to the PTA to fund special events at Roosevelt and , including school assemblies, buses for class trips, and teacher grants for special projects.
