For many families, August means its time for kids to get back to homework and classes as they begin a new year at school! So, The Fountains threw one last ode to Summer with our Watermark for Kids Back to School Carnival! With tons of games like Tip the Clown, Quarterback Challenge and Milking the Cow, our Courtyard was transformed into the ultimate fair experience and our residents had a blast trying out each one and winning fun prizes. The highlights of the carnival were the Dunk Tank and Pie in the Face games, where residents and associates had the opportunity to dunk our managers in freezing cold water or slam a pie in their face (all in good fun, of course!). We had family members join in the festivities with grandchildren getting their face painted while their parents feasted on corn dogs and fried Twinkies. Amos, the Wonder Horse, stopped by to pose for pictures with everyone and the clowns on hand made sure everyone had a balloon animal. In addition to being a fun day in the sun in our courtyard, this carnival also supported Watermark For Kids. With gracious donations from residents, associates, and family members, we raised over $300 for Watermark For Kids. With music, cotton candy, and snow cones galore, it was our biggest carnival yet and everyone had the best day! We already can’t wait for the next one!
