Fourth annual 'Bash' puts supplies in hands of needyBy JOHN A. WINTERS
Hundreds of students and their parents turned out Saturday to pick up some free donated school supplies.
It was the fourth annual Community Kidz Back to School Bash held Saturday morning at the Coweta County Fairgrounds. Participants got to listen to bands, eat hotdogs and pick up backpacks and supplies for the new school year.
School supplies were put together in backpacks and were age-appropriate, including items for all ages from kindergarten through high school. Also handed out were clothing and other personal care items.
A big grill was set up and hundreds of hotdogs were dished out. Afterwards, kids were out on a castle jumpy while parents listened to bands.
