Fourth in North Platte.Cody Park events that day also include several games, such as putt-putt golf, a basketball and football toss, soccer kick and an obstacle course. The park is open from 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
Each child will receive a participation token, Cody Park concessions manager Judy Holys said.
This is the fourth annual kids day at Cody Park sponsored by the Thrift Center. Holys said the day is called “Coach Cody’s Boot Camp.”
The Thrift Center is an all-volunteer effort that receives donated items, checks them out and offers them for sale at low prices. Proceeds go to the handicapped, be they physically, emotionally or mentally handicapped, president Bonnie Smith said.
The center has operated for 43 years in North Platte. It handles items of all kinds, except furniture and appliances.
“We like to give back to the community,” Smith said.
