Wondering what to do with all the small change sliding around on the floor of your car? With the nickels and dimes cluttering your dresser or the collection of pennies between couch cushions? This Saturday from 12-4:00 p.m. at the Huss Future Festival, we’re putting loose change to good use at the first ever Coin Carnival! By giving any amount of change, adults and children alike can participate in a game, activity, or craft put together by a local organization.
Among a handful of others, the Three Rivers Area Faith Community (TRAFC), the Three Rivers Public Library, and Florence Church of the Brethren Mennonite will be out on the lawn, adding to the happy commotion of Future Fest.
“Part of the vision of Huss is that it will be a place of collaboration. We want to support organizations that are providing great services to the community,” said *cino staff member and coin carnival manager, Deborah Haak.
Those involved with *cino and the Huss Project view the Coin Carnival as an opportunity for various organizations to connect with one another and to supply participants with information about local services. Also in the spirit of collaboration, half of all Coin Carnival proceeds will go to the organization, while the other half will go to the Huss Project.
“We can be more supportive of the constituency and serve them on a broader scope of issues when we work together,” added *cino staff member, Emily Ulmer, “We’re always stronger together.”
The Huss Future Festival will take place Saturday, July 20, from 9-4:00 p.m., with the Coin Carnival running from 12-4:00 p.m. And check out our full schedule of events for all kinds of other fun activities happening all day long!
