ACTION Services and Sacred Heart Key Club gathered at Morrilton City Park for Spring Festival 2022. The event was sponsored by the Morrilton Kiwanis Club and Conway and Perry County Realtors Association.
The students engaged in several activities such as tossing water balloons, face painting, and bowling, along with creating Easter baskets with ACTION clients. Once the karaoke machine was plugged up, it turned into a party as ACTION clients shared their musical talents and a few of their favorite tunes on the microphone.
Mary Eggart, Sacred Heart Key Club Sponsor, said, “At Sacred Heart, our Key Club students LOVE our time spent with the clients! We look forward to both the Fishing Derby and the Spring Festival with them each year. We feel very blessed to have all of our wonderful new friendships and look forward to serving the clients more in the future.”
Key Club International, also called Key Club, is an international service organization for high school students. As a student-led organization, Key Club’s goal is to encourage leadership through serving others, and Kiwanis International is their parent organization.
“The clients have a way of bringing out the best in people, and it’s wonderful to watch kids this age with ACTION clients. The kids are just really amazing”, stated Kasey Howell, Program Assistant for ACTION Services.
