On Saturday, April 27th from 9:00am – noon, the MDI Rotary and the MDI YMCA are celebrating Healthy Kids Day® – a FREE community event for kids and families. More than 1,900 Ys across the country are taking part in the celebration, meant to kick start physical activity and learning throughout the summer – a critical out-of-school time for kids. The event features a bike safety event, so children should bring their bikes. The MDI Rotary is providing free youth bike helmets and fittings. There will also be games, free snacks and demonstrations from local organizations, an indoor play center, and the ever popular ‘baby races’. For more information, contact Aaron at 288-3511. The MDI Y is located on Park Street in Bar Harbor.

Run for Fun and Run for Good Health! The MDI YMCA is hosting a Kid’s one-mile fun run on Saturday, April 27th at 9:15am. All finishers receive a race ribbon and prizes. There is a nominal fee which helps support the Y’s scholarship program. For more information contact Becky at the MDI YMCA at 288-3511. The MDI Y is located on Park St. in Bar Harbor.
