Fresh vegetables were available in the Y’s lobby. Additional activities included making slime creations, face painting, and tie-dye lessons.

Later in the afternoon a bike raffle was held courtesy of Sodexo. Additional support was provided by Eastern Propane, Fairview Lake YMCA, Hardyston Police Department, Blue Mountain Camp, Norwescap, Girl Scouts, Sussex County Resource Family Recruiter, Newton Medical Center, Division of Child Protection & Permanency, Sussex County Health Department, Sussex Christian School PRCA Rodeo, Andersen Farms, and an appearance by Miss Rodeo New Jersey Amada Thompson.
