Ag Education Days are planned for March 24-25 at the Y
Activity Center, 719 Wyatt Ave. This event is sponsored by the Logan

about agriculture. Ag Days will feature dairy cows, hogs, tractors,
corn, soybeans and much more.
Spring break in April will be here before you know it. Don't get
caught with nothing for the kids to do. School's Out Fun Days
are planned for April 8 (District 27 only), April 9 and April 13. No
activities are scheduled on April 10 as the YMCA will be closed for
Good Friday. Registration deadlines apply and there will be a fee
increase of $8 per child per day for any registrations received
after March 25. School's Out Fun Days take place at the Y Activity
Center from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. for kindergarten through sixth
grade. The kids will do arts and crafts, hear stories, play games,
and much more. Stop by the Lincoln Area YMCA office soon to register
for these School's Out Fun Days.

inquire about the scholarship program so that your child can still
enjoy soccer, swimming, volleyball and more at a cost that can fit
