Grant Funding Makes Water Wizz Adventure Possible

Receipt of grant funding from the Fall River Women’s Union made a summer wish become a reality for 75 children enrolled in the Citizens for Citizens, Inc. (CFC) After School Day Care Program. On August 6, 2009, two school busloads of After School Day Care Program children and staff left Fall River and headed for Water Wizz , a water theme park located in Wareham.

Eloise Carrier, the CFC Director of the After School Day Care Program, described the day’s activities. “While riding to Water Wizz, the children were curious about their new adventure. Most of the children had never been to a water park and had no idea what to expect. When the buses pulled up to the gate of the park, there was an explosion of excitement as the children saw the slides and other fun activities waiting for them. The staff was busy preparing the children for the park activities as the children excitedly discussed which of the water stations would be the most fun or require the most bravery. After a morning snack, the children were divided into groups and the rules were reviewed. It was then off to the water slides and playgrounds for a fabulous day of wet and crazy fun for everyone! On the ride home, the children kept asking if they would be making a return trip to Water Wizz next year. This field trip was a wonderful treat, thanks to the bighearted support of the Fall River Women’s Union.”
