The following was submitted by Tufts University:
Medford and Somerville children in kindergarten through third grade are invited to attend this year's Kids' Day at Tufts University on Saturday, April 19, from 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. on the Medford/Somerville campus.
More than 300 kids typically attend this free, fun-filled day of activities, including kiddy carnival rides, entertainment by Tufts student organizations, game booths, and lunch. Tufts Emergency Medical Services (TEMS) and Public Safety staff will be on hand to help ensure the safety of participants.
This year's theme, "Jumbo to the rescue!", will feature games, a salute to local heroes, a chemistry presentation and other fun activities.
Kids' Day is presented by the Leonard Carmichael Society (LCS), Tufts' largest undergraduate, student-run organization. Founded in 1958, LCS oversees approximately 40 community service groups at Tufts, focusing on issues concerning children, the environment, hunger and homelessness, and health. For almost five decades, Kids' Day has been the largest community service event run by undergrad students at Tufts.
