Barnett hosted a wonderful Family Night event on May 9, 2022. The community was invited to enjoy food from food trucks (Smokin' Roadside BBQ Grill, The Corn Dog Company, Waffle Love, and Kona Ice), listen to music, play games as a family hosted by our student lighthouse team, check for lost belongings in the Lost & Found, get free books & educational posters, and stop by booths with community resources available.
The Payson City Library and Tabitha's Way both hosted booths to inform about resources and programs they have available for Barnett families and others in Payson. The library even brought a 30 pound boa constrictor for families to meet and some brave souls to hold. Families brought donations of the most needed items at Tabitha's Way, such as toilet paper and toothpaste. There was dancing, thanks to the excellent DJ skills of the Draper family, playing, eating, learning, and coming together as a community - which we all have sorely missed. It was joyous being together again to reinforce that Together We Are Better!
