QJ said hello and high-fived all of the children in attendance as they enjoyed a variety of yummy snacks. He then enjoyed a presentation from the Garden City Fire Department of the various equipment they use when helping keep the community safe. Following the demonstration, QuackerJack joined Mr. Met and dozens of children on the dance floor to show off his moves to some of today’s most popular tunes.
During the visit, QJ also played many games with those in attendance. He showcased his ability at basketball shooting and air hockey challenges and was helped kids make balloon animals. Finally, QuackerJack stepped outside to check out the fire department truck and police cars that were brought by for children to see. Overall, it was a fun-filled day for everyone!
