The Rush Elementary School in Hometown held its annual Fun Day and mini Relay For Life recently at the school.

The Pirate-themed day was filled with many forms of fun events, games, and activities.

Some of the many activities all the children participated in were inflatable gym bounce, dancing, karaoke, scavenger hunt, craft pictures, outfield sports, obstacle course, gold doubloon toss, scooter obstacle course, dunk tank, bag race, limbo, and many more.

The volunteer organizers of the Fun Day were fifth grade headroom parent Frances Houser and assistant Linda Smarr.

All students also participated in a mini Relay For Life. They both stressed their great appreciation for all the school's staff, parents, Tamaqua Middle School Honor Society, Tamaqua Senior High School Honor Society, and other volunteers who helped in the event.

A t-shirt design contest was also held for the best design for all the students to wear during the fun day. The t-shirt contest design winner was Page Eltringham, age 10, from Quakake.
