Family Fun for April Fools at the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center

Clearwater families gather at the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center to enjoy a fun filled April fools day without the conventional mischief.

Clearwater, FL, April 08, 2019 --( On March 31st, the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) held a no-cost & fun-filled celebration of April Fools Day without the conventional mischief for Clearwater families at the CCV Center in downtown Clearwater.

The event began with a catered reception of kid-friendly foods such as chicken nuggets, pizza and chicken caesar salad, along with desserts like apple fritters and cookies.

Tables were set up with children’s activities so kids could make arts and crafts projects and a contest was held wherein children could pop balloons some of which contained tickets they could redeem for prizes.

“April Fools’ Day has been celebrated for several centuries by different cultures,” said Michael Soltero of the CCV Center. “In the 1500’s, New Year’s Day was celebrated on April 1st, however, when France switched its calendar to the Gregorian calendar, New Year’s Day was moved to January 1st. Apparently, some people did not get the memo and were teased for not knowing. However, rather than celebrate with practical jokes and mayhem, we wanted to do a different take – April 1st as a celebration of spring.”

After getting their tickets from the balloons, families went to The Way to Happiness Center, a block away, to be awarded their prizes. There guests were introduced to the Way to Happiness, written by humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard.

When asked about the event one parent said, “My family had so much fun at the CCV Center. We had no idea they were doing so much for the community from this building.”

Attendees were also invited to CCV’s Annual Ginormous Easter Egg Hunt in Coachman Park, which is being held this year on Sunday, April 21st.
