“This event continues to grow year after year,” said Lena Burdette, community initiatives coordinator. “We are very excited to host this event, and after 12 years, it’s still going strong. This is a popular event that draws families from all over the River Cities to one central location. We hope that they gain knowledge and skills about what Success By 6 is doing in the community.”

Success By 6 seeks to ensure that all children are ready physically, mentally, developmentally, emotionally and socially to begin kindergarten.
