Healthy Henry County Communities is once again bringing S.O. Fun Day to Swedesburg and Olds on Saturday, June 18th.  S.O. Fun Day is a free community event to encourage individuals and families to enjoy some physical activity in a fun social setting.  New this year is a 5K fun run from Olds to Swedesburg. There is no entry fee but a food donation to the Fellowship Cup is encouraged.

Activities will start in the Olds City Park from 9-10am with games, sports activities, face painting, crafts, and more.  The 5K will start at 9:30.  At 10:00 there will be a group walk/bike ride/wagon ride from Olds to Swedesburg.  From 10am-Noon there will be a variety of kids games, an inflatable obstacle course, face painting, and more outside of Parish Hall in Swedesburg.  A light lunch will be provided at 11:30.  If you don’t want to walk or ride back to Olds you can catch a mule and wagon ride back.
