With beautiful skies overhead, the Opelika Children’s Rehabilitation Service office opened the summer vacation season Friday with this year’s School’s Out Bash for children with special health care needs.
Approximately 150-200 families from Lee, Tallapoosa, Macon, Chambers, Randolph, Russell, and Montgomery counties attended the event.
Sharon Henderson, parent consultant for Opelika CRS, coordinated the event, which has quickly grown to become the largest event held each year at Opelika’s CRS office.
The party featured music from DJ Catalyst, balloon art from Dewayne “Dr. Magic” Reynolds, a petting zoo courtesy of Jubilee Farms, face painting by Sweet Cheeks, and appearances from McGruff the Crime Dog, and several birds of prey from the Auburn University Raptor Center.
