WILMINGTON, MA — It was a particularly busy day at the Yentile Farm Recreational Facility last Sunday, September 8, 2019.
Wilmington Community Television held its annual Family Dun Day from 10am to 1pm, while the Wilmington Senior Center hosted its annual Grandparents Day Celebration from 1pm to 3pm.
“This is the third year we’ve been hosting our Family Fun Day at Yentile and it was the biggest one yet,” said Executive Director Shaun Neville. “As a community non-profit, we love having this event every year to connect with families and educate people about who we are and what we do. Thanks to Iron Clad Martial Arts, Precision Dance and the Pop Warner Cheerleaders for coming out and being a part of the day.”
In addition to demonstrations from local dancers, cheerleaders, and martial arts students, families enjoyed balloon animals, face painting, music, bubbles, and the playground.
More than 200 popsicles, 100 ice cream sandwiches, and countless bags of popcorn were given away.
When the clock stuck 1pm, the Wilmington Elderly Services Department began its Grandparents Day Celebration.
“Grandparents Day at Yentile Park was once again a great success,” reported Wilmington Elderly Services Director Terri Marciello. “We had Kelli LaVita get things started with a Zumba class that got the energy flowing. Greta Nilsen was then able to introduce many to the ancient teachings of Tai Chi. Folks were able to enjoy the beautiful day with family and friends.”
In between classes, grandparents and grandkids took advantage of the park’s playground and walking trail. Refreshments and prizes were provided.
