My daughter attended Westerner Days on Kids Day with a large group of children from her Summer School Age Camp Program. After spending time at the kids corral, she left the playdough table leaving behind her baggie of $10.
When I arrived after work to pick her up from the program, I immediately noticed her sad face. Not what I was expecting to see after a fun day at the fair.
She said she had “the worst day ever” since she was unable to get a treat or play games like the rest of the children. Since her money had both her first and last name on the bag, she thought someone may have turned it in. On the off chance, I sent an email to the receptionist at the Westerner.
Later the next day, I received a phone call from John Harms, the CEO of the Westerner. He told me the money had not been found, however the commissionaires had chipped in money and they had $10 for my daughter. He also invited her back to the fair with free parking and passes to get us in.
We want to send a big thank you to the commissionaires and to John Harms for this unexpected act of kindness. You turned a little girl’s frown upside down.
