Family Fun Night a success

District 728 Community Education’s annual Family Fun Night, which attracted 600 people last year, attracted even more this year.  Event organizers are estimating more than 800 turned out for the May 4 event at the Handke Family Center. Those who came helped celebrate children’s mental health and wellness.
