Catoosa Kids Day was held on Friday, April 30, 2010. Forty-one agencies set up booths for the event on the grounds outside of the Catoosa County Health Department at the Benton Place Campus off Old Mill Road. Catoosa Family Collaborative coordinator, Phil Ledbetter reported over 350 packets given for Georgia Pre-K and Head Start. The Catoosa Health Department, with help from the public school nurses, provided vision, hearing, & dental services to 108 children and immunizations to 52 Kindergarten or Pre-K students that will start school this fall. There were an estimated 400 families with well over 700 people total attending Catoosa Kids Day this year. The Catoosa Family Collaborative set up a hospitality room to feed over 175 staff--vendors, health department, and Skills USA Club members.
The 42 booths were set up by local agencies, churches, doctors' offices, day cares, civic clubs, sheriff’s department, healthcare centers, businesses, and many more to distribute information to families and to provide fun activities for the children (see booth list below).
