The 3rd Annual Annie D. Jones Child Enrichment Fund 3k Walk fundraiser event was held on April 28 at Smithfield Community Park. 42 participates walked the Greenway trail
The Walk began with a salute to our roots and namesake, the late Mrs. Annie D. Jones. A prayer, prayed by Annie's son Rev. Robert Jones, Jr. and the release of 3 purple balloons signified the start of the 2018 3rd Annual 3k Walk.
$1,035.00 was raised to fund scholarships for disadvantaged children to participate in recreational and cultural activities provided by Smithfield Parks and Recreation, Morgan's Gymnastics, Artistry In Motion, Johnston HealthQuest, Neuse Little Theatre's Summer Drama Program, and Kerrie Clayton, Piano Instructor. This would not have been possible without our supporters. Thanks, to all who contributed!
Another scholarship was presented for swimming in the month of April. This is the second child who received swimming lessons by HealthQuest this year. Thanks, to Leslie Cushing for her patience and support.
