Thanks to the Bloomsburg University Honors students who volunteered all evening long alongside the employees and volunteers of the presenting organizations.  Through these organizations’ generosity, families will enjoy all of the fun absolutely free!  Of course, they all count on generosity throughout the year: Only through contributions of time and money from people throughout our community do these non-profits survive and thrive.
