YWCA Fun Factory is back for the summer
Come out and have fun from June 20 to August 1
June 23, 2022
Walla Walla Valley-Fun Factory is a mobile summer recreation program that brings fun outdoor activities for kids 5-10(ish) to the Walla Walla Valley communities.
This year the YWCA program will bring the fun to Prescott Park, Preston Park in Waitsburg, and Dayton's Memorial Library, and The Club on Mondays. Look for the white Fun Factory van and meet the program leaders, who will be easy to spot with their brightly colored tie-dyed shirts.
Last year's participants will remember Ana Rubie, returning to the program with new leaders, Vivianna McKinney, Dominic Walker, and Jessica Swanson.
Rubie is a senior at Whitman College and plans on continuing her education in art next year.
McKinney is a competitive volleyball player attending Walla Walla Community College. She is studying animal science to become a large animal vet working internationally with exotic animals.
Dominic Walker is a Pacific Lutheran University student studying music education to become a music teacher for kids in K-12.
The Times did not get to meet Jessica Swanson; however, she will undoubtedly add much to the summer's fun. Be sure to come out and meet all the leaders and make some new friends.
The program meets outside, with indoor alternatives for extreme heat or weather conditions.
